The Phoenix School System

Phoenix has more than 300 public schools in 30 school districts, along with nearly 200 private and charter schools. The way the schools are designated and organized is a bit more complicated in the Phoenix area than in most other school districts. It is the legacy of rapid city expansion into other incorporated areas. Many of the existing schools were already in place before they became part of Phoenix. Because of this, some school districts only serve grades K-8 while others only serve grades 9-12, and still others have schools in grades K-12. It can be challenging for parents to discern which school their child will be directed to as he or she advances through the system, and even more difficult to determine what placement would be most beneficial.

No matter which school your child is in, online or in-home tutoring could help him or her maximize academic potential. Private tutors in the Phoenix area can assist students in grades K-12 with any coursework they find challenging and can also help with preparation for exams such as the ISEE, ACT, SAT, AzMERIT, and AIMS Science.

Here's a breakdown of AzMerit proficiency rates in the city. How does your student measure up?

Phoenix Test Scores

The AzMERIT is the statewide achievement test for students in Arizona schools. It assesses reading, writing, and mathematical skills for students in the third grade and above each spring. While students are not required to pass an AzMERIT for graduation, they are required to pass a civics exam prior to graduation. The AIMS Science exam is given to students in grades 4, 8, and in high school in order to ensure students meet federal requirements for science educational gains.

Varsity Tutors can help you find a Phoenix tutor who explains course and exam content to students, while also helping them refine their test-taking skills. If you have a student who is eager to attend one of the best schools in the city, you may want to consider one of the following options:

An experienced private tutor can work with a student to get prepared for entrance exams such as the SAT or ACT.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Phoenix, AZ tutoring
The student was intelligent, but he tends to make simple mistakes in some areas where he should be stronger. For instance, he would often answer correctly without much effort, but then I'd look at the answer he put previously and notice that he either guessed incorrectly or settled upon an answer that was good but not good enough (typical in reading comprehension questions). I suspect this is because he has only recently begun to work on these tests. As he practices more, he'll be able to work through 120 questions without getting burned out. Also, I gave him strategies to help to make it less cumbersome.

During the student's last session, we went through four test sections -- two reading, one math, and one writing -- and then concluded by recapping some of the strategies we have worked on throughout our two months of lessons. The student stands well-situated on his upcoming SAT(s). His math is very close to perfect and little work remains to be done there. Reading and Writing are also very, very strong.

The student and I talked about food, cooking, and restaurant culture in New York. We also talked some more about his various professions of interest. During the last half hour, we translated into Spanish a poem that he wrote recently, and discussed the different choices of words we had in translating.

The student and I talked through her strengths and weaknesses on the assessment test and what work she'd already done. She is very bright and motivated, and already in very strong shape for the test. We will focus on reading comprehension and scrambled paragraphs next.

We began our session by reviewing the science portion of the test about data representation. The student practiced on two items (a botany example and mortality rates) graphs and tables. He did quite well on both. He then took the mathematics (timed) portion of the test. We finished with a brief online practice of grammar. Great session and great student!!

Covered a math section from the review book, including three different advanced geometry problems, one involving trig (but allowing for shortcut special right triangles) on a map. The special right triangles is not something we've gone over, so this was very productive. We moved on to an English section, only one rhetorical skills question wrong, the rest were miscellaneous grammar questions, mostly commas. Very impressed with student's progress on English. Finished up with an essay, which went very well.
