The High School Garden Club put their green thumbs to the test this week with a new landscaping project. Settling on a plot near the high school, the students edged the garden with decorative stone to blend with the desert landscaping style of the campus. The garden’s plants–a variety of water wise bamboo called FirePower Nandina–are creatively arranged to spell out “CAS.”
Phoenix, Ariz. – September 17, 2015
The State Board of Education (SBE) has created a website for Arizonans to review and provide comment on Arizona’s Mathematics (math) and English language arts (ELA) Academic Standards.
The site, https://k12standards.az.gov, provides parents, teachers, community members, and others an easy way to review the current standards and provide their thoughts on how the standards can be improved. This information will be used to assist the state in the improvement of Arizona’s current academic standards.
In addition to the site, the SBE is working with county superintendents to host meetings around Arizona so people may provide their thoughts on the standards via a public meeting. Dates of the meetings will be released in the coming weeks.
Comments on the standards may also be mailed to:
State Board of Education
Attn: K12 Standards Public Input
1700 W. Washington
Executive Tower Suite 300
Phoenix, Arizona 85007

The Center for Academic Success is proud and excited to announce that we have been awarded the 21st Century Community Learning Centers grant for our high school. This is in addition to the program we have had at the elementary and middle school for the past six years. This grant will assist us in providing opportunities before and after the regular academic school day. We are extending our school day from 7:00am to 5:00pm. These extended hours will allow our students opportunities to receive additional assistance with their regular classes, tutoring or homework help. It will also provide opportunities to catch up on classes or move ahead in their studies. We will also provide enrichment clubs and activities to include; Robotics, Wall Art, Yearbook, Zumba, Solar Go Cart, and many more. We invite parents and students to take advantage of this opportunity where we can continue to provide a safe, secure supervised learning environment, both before and after school.
Fall picture day also provides a chance to document the fun students are having this school year. Students will be called in class groups to take both individual and class portraits.
Click here to visit the photographer’s site and place online orders for portraits. Orders with checks/cash in envelopes will also be accepted. Parents, please note that dress code and school uniform is still required on picture day, so students in the k-8 building must come in polos and jeans or khakis. Students in the k-8 building will have a second picture day in the spring for which they may then dress down.
