After a three-year hiatus, the Arizona State Board of Education A-F School Letter Grades for all public schools statewide are back.
We are proud to report that 28 of our 30 schools earned an A or a B rating.
Like all schools in Arizona and across the country, our schools continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, but overall, our students and schools are performing better than their peers.
Fourteen of our schools maintained their A rating, while three improved. Arcadia High School and Echo Canyon K-8 improved their letter grades from B’s to A’s this year. Yavapai Elementary School jumped from a D to an A. We are also the only district with two high schools in the top 10 in the state.
