Open Quote I have been teaching here for 5 years. We have recently been subject to a state AzMERIT exam at the end of each year. In the 2016-2017 school year, the school earned a D grade from the state (grading on the standard A through F scale). The 2017-2018 school year reflected significant increases in our test scores as the school earned a B grade from the state (actually only 3 points from and A grade). Conversely, for some reason(s), SchoolDigger reflects a decrease over the same two years. It appears the State of Arizona and SchoolDigger opposing views on the state of Mt. Tipton School. I find it disturbing that data may be analyzed in such a way that two independent entities could have such different results. I am not pointing fingers, just raising concern as to who does one believe? The State of Arizona or SchoolDigger? Either way, it is a shame there is such a disparity between the two. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
