Arizona Aims Higher

Your child deserves a high quality education that prepares him for college and career.


Your Child Needs a Good Education

The world is continually changing and the jobs of the future require more education and training than ever. In fact, in Arizona, 85 percent of high-growth, high-wage jobs require some type of postsecondary education or training. This means that to get a good job, all Arizona students need to graduate from high school and pursue some type of career training or postsecondary degree.

All Arizona High School Students Need to Graduate Prepared

The standards and assessments will better prepare your child for success in college, career and life. The standards encourage the development of critical-thinking, problem-solving and effective communications skills. They will allow parents, students and teachers to be on the same page about student learning and set high expectations together.

Arizona Teachers Overwhelmingly Support the Standards

Teachers have been teaching higher standards since 2011 and strongly support them, but many have said they need more training and resources to teach them effectively. Find out how you can make sure your child’s school has the resources it needs to give your child the best education possible.
