Valley Academy Again Rated “A” by the Arizona Department of Education
Reid Traditional Schools is proud to announce that once again, Valley Academy has been granted the highest rating possible from the Arizona Department of Education (ADE), the letter grade “A.” Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal announced the release of Arizona’s A-F letter grades on August 2nd. Reviewing the last decade of ADE evaluations, Valley Academy has consistently scored in the highest category, “excelling,” for many years and now under the ADE’s newer program, letter grade “A.”
According to the ADE, of 1,733 Arizona schools, only 23 per cent received an “A” grade this year. Schools are evaluated both on how many students are passing AIMS each year and how much the students academically grow each year. Other factors such as a school’s English language learner reclassification rate are taken into consideration, when applicable. “A” schools demonstrate an excellent level of performance.
Valley Academy is named “2011 School of the Year”
