The Arizona Department of Education released "letter grades" for each school on Aug. 1, 2013, demonstrating its rating of how the school is performing.

“A” schools demonstrate an excellent level of performance.

“B” schools demonstrate an above average level of performance.

“C” schools demonstrate an average level of performance.

“D” schools demonstrate a below average level of performance.

“F” schools are those that rank as a “D” school for three consecutive years. “F” schools are placed under the school improvement process by the

Arizona Department of Education so that they can receive extra support and resources.

Schools are evaluated on a 200 point system, with half the score determined by the percentage of students passing AIMS (bonus points are available for graduation rate, reclassification of English Language Learners and the dropout rate).

The other 100 points are awarded based on academic growth, both growth of all students and growth of the bottom 25 percent of students.
