2011-2012 Arizona Department of Education Standardized Test for all Mesa Schools


Arizona Department of Education results from standardardized tests recently released letter grades A – D for all Arizona School Districts and their individual Schools to provide parents a measure of school performance based upon the 2011 - 2012 school year standardized test results.  

The City of Mesa Arizona is served by three school districts: 1.) Mesa Unified, 2.) Gilbert Unified and 3.) Queen Creek Unified Districts.

For a letter grade for all schools educating Mesa students go to Mesa Arizona Schools.



A” rating = Excelling or Exceptional. “B” rating = Highly Performing or Above Average. “C” rating = Average school performance. “D” rating = Underperforming Schools.

Underperforming schools must improve their letter grade to at least a "C" within three years to avoid being taken over by the Arizona Department of Education to impose corrective action or close down.

One of the three school districts educating Mesa AZ students is Mesa Unified School District which includes 76 schools:

“A” letter grade - 21 schools

"B" letter grade - 33 schools

"C" letter grade - 20 schools

“D” letter grade - 2 schools



When comparing Mesa Unified School District school year 2010 - 2011 to 2011 - 2012 letter grades, eighteen (18) Mesa Unified schools improved their letter grade including seven (7) that were elevated to the highest “A” grade, while ten (10) advanced to “B” grade.

Unfortunately, ten (10) Mesa Unified schools dropped in letter grade held the previous school year. Mesa school district is large and diverse with many challenges.

Congratulations to Mesa USD for raising school letter grades as higher standards are imposed and maintaining a Mesa Unified School District Letter Grade of “B”!
