Pima Partnership Academy opened as a charter school in 2008 for students in 7th and 8th grade. The school has an average of 100 students per year. The focus of the school is to provide students with an environment that focuses on individualized academics and social responsibility. The school provides a challenging distinguished educational program with an extended day option. The school works with students that are considered at risk due to underperformance, poor attendance, disruptive behavior or are at risk of dropping out of school. Along with core subject matter, the school provides other instructional programs such as out of school tutoring, Saturday tutoring, and after school programs.
Parents are thrilled with the school that will give their children the opportunity to graduate from high school in a more personal educational setting. The extra curricular activities help the students learn how to work as at team as well as enjoy becoming life long learners.
The students at Pima Partnership Academy participated in the AIMS series of tests. These tests are used to measure if students are mastering core subjects. Percentages of seventh graders that passed the reading exam were below state average by 17%, in writing by 20%, and in math by 30%. Eighth graders were below state average in reading by 20%, below average in science by 30%, below average in writing by 20%, and 30% below average in math.
Even though the percentage of students that passed the exams are quite a bit lower than state averages, one must remember that most of the students the school are considered at risk of graduating high school. By looking at the scores, you can see that the school is doing a pretty good job working with students that need extra attention in order to succeed.
