Achievement Profiles


Rancho Gabriela staff celebrate being named an "A" schoolThe A-F Letter Grade System was created by the Arizona Department of Education to provide clear, easy-to understand information to parents so that they could base their educational decisions on the best information available about the overall academic performance of schools and districts/charter holders.  The AZ LEARNS Legacy accountability system used students’ scores on the AIMS tests to determine which of the achievement profiles the school would receive. The A-F Letter Grade System uses a combination of students’ scores on the AIMS tests (50 percent) and the academic growth of students from one year to the next (50 percent). This more complete view of student learning provides a clearer picture of how well schools and districts/charter holders are educating their students.
 
  • “A” schools demonstrate an excellent level of performance. For example, “A” schools earn points equal to a school that has 90 percent of students passing AIMS and achieves greater academic growth with its population of students than most schools.
  • “B” schools demonstrate an above average level of performance. For example, “B” schools earn points equal to a school that has 70 percent of students passing AIMS and generally achieves typical or greater academic growth with its population of students than most schools.
  • “C” schools demonstrate an average level of performance. For example, “C” schools earn points equal to a school that has 50 percent of students passing AIMS and generally achieves typical academic growth with its population of students than most schools.
  • “D” schools demonstrate a below average level of performance. For example, “D” schools earn fewer points than a school that has 50 percent of students passing AIMS and does not achieve typical or greater academic growth with its population of students than most schools.
  • “F” schools are those that score as a “D” school for three consecutive years. “F” schools are placed in school improvement by the Arizona Department of Education
