The implementation of Arizona’s College and Career Ready Standards is making a difference in student success beyond the classroom. Using these standards, learners are required to think more critically and become more involved in justifying their responses when answering higher-level questions.

Students take a more active role by acquiring ownership of their learning. This builds self-confidence and allows for higher levels of success.

Flynn used a modern, nautical Cole & Sons wallpaper with a casual feel, then added accents of red through Saarinen tulip chairs and a vintage Circle K sign found at the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Like the best flea market finds, the Circle K sign connects with the homeowner's past (in this case, teen years growing up near Florida beaches), giving his weekend home a personal, nostalgic feel.
