Edge High School opened their northwest campus for the 2004 – 2005 school year offering two mornings and two afternoon sessions for classes. The school opened to provide students in 9th through 12th grades with an alternative to public education while providing a small school atmosphere where students can and will excel. The average enrollments for the entire school per year are 38 students, which provides a more one on one education.
The school provides an individualized curriculum that is challenging as well as focused on mastering the skills needed to succeed whether joining the workforce or attending a higher educational facility. The school works with students to help each one recover credits or to accelerate their learning in order to graduate at a faster pace.
Parents and students both agree the school is for students that are determined and motivated to graduate high school and become productive members of society. The teachers are very helpful and work with each student as needed. The school provides a curriculum that involves both classroom time as well as online time which aids students in creating a schedule that will help learn better and faster.
In the state of Arizona in order to graduate from high school, all students attending a public school including public charter schools must pass the AIMS series of exams in 10th grade. The students at Edge High School Northwest Campus participated in the exam with the percentages of students that passed or exceeded the exam are listed below.
In reading, 67% of 10th graders passed or exceeded the exam, in science 25%, in writing 67%, and in math 15%. With scores that are quite low, it would be in your best interest to talk with parents and students that are involved with the school prior to enrolling your student. Reading and writing are not bad which is around the same percentages seen across the state, however, science and math seem low when compared to state averages.
