AIMS testing will begin the spring of the student’s sophomore year.

Writing, Reading, Math and Science will be tested (for Freshmen in Honors Biology the Science AIMS will be tested during Freshman year).

Students must pass writing, reading and math at this time to graduate from any AZ school- science is to be determined by the state.

Students who do not pass one or more of the three tests required for graduation will be re-tested their junior year and senior year as needed.

Students wishing to re-test to exceed will sign up in August and December of their junior year.

It is imperative that every student sit for every testing date until the criteria are met or they will not be considered for further consideration for graduation per AZ Dept of Ed.
