High School Travel Club is looking for a donation of a carry-on sized suitcase. We bought games in New York during last year's snow day due to a Nor'easter . Since our trips regularly head to the East Coast, there's is always a possibility of snow days or delayed flights due to storms. We would like to be able to take along a suitcase of games every year to avoid repurchasing them as needed. If you have a suitcase to donate, please drop it off in the front office. Thank you! ​
AZ CHARTER SCHOOLS RANK HIGH ON NATIONS REPORT CARD
If Arizona charter students were their own state, they would rank first in the nation in eighth-grade math, and second for eighth-grade reading, according to scores released today from the National Assessment for Educational Progress or Nation's Report Card.


Some findings:
  • If AZ charter students were measured as their own state, our eighth graders would rank first in the nation in math, second for eighth grade Reading for NAEP scores. 
  • 2017 Nation’s Report Card shows AZ charter school students continue to set the pace – outperforming non-charter peers in every grade & subject statewide
  • NAEP scores confirm what thousands in AZ have known for years: our charters schools & students are raising the bar & improving public education.
