Imagine School at Camelback opened their charter school in 2006 for students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grades. The school focuses not only on cores subjects but also physical education, music, and art. The school also provides students with other options that helps them build cooperation and enjoy various extra curricular activities and sports which include chorus, band, dance, drawing, computer arts, basketball, cross country, football, soccer, volleyball, physical education classes, student council, yearbook, and science & technology. The student body is 74% Hispanic.
Parents overall love the school and the teachers with their children doing better once they began attending imagine School. There may be a bit of issues with communication as the school keeps the students busy throughout the day during class time so communication with the teachers may not be the best way to get your child out of class early.
The school offers a very nice atmosphere where students feel at home while receiving the attention they need to succeed.
A look at the percentages of students that passed or exceeded the AIMS series of tests often provides parents with the information they need to make an educated decision. However, this does not always tell the full story of a school. Low tests scores does not always mean that the school is not working with students, but that the curriculum needs some attention in order to give students the knowledge they need to pass the exams. In reading and writing 3rd graders were below the state average while they were above average in math. Fourth graders were very close to average in reading, below by around 20% in science, average in writing, and only 3% below in math. Fifth graders were close to average in reading, while writing and math were around 20% below the average. Sixth graders were around 20% below the state average in reading, writing, and math. Seventh graders did very poorly by being almost 30% below in reading, 30% in writing, and 40% in math. Eighth graders did a bit better being just below the state average across the board.
It would be in your best interest to learn more about the curriculum since the majority of the classes are below the state average before enrolling your child in the school.
