Find A Public School
The Education Evaluator, powered by the Arizona Charter Schools Association, is a public school map that provides an easy, transparent way to research and compare schools across the state. Users can view enrollment information, student achievement data and school specific information for all of Arizona’s public schools — district and charter.
Data Used to Evaluate Schools
School Type: There are two types of public schools: charter and district. District schools are governed by a locally elected school board, while charter schools are governed by an independent board of directors. Charters are granted by state-approved charter school authorizers, such as the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools.
Number of Students: Enrollment information is based on the October 1, 2016 student count reported to the Arizona Department of Education.
Congressional and Legislative District: Congressional and Legislative Districts are based on 2013 boundary lines.
Grades Served: Grade levels served are based on 2016-17 school year data as reported to the Arizona Department of Education.
A-F Letter Grades: The Arizona Department of Education issues letter grades for all public schools. There are three types of letter grades: traditional (A-F); alternative school grades are designated by an –ALT (i.e., A-ALT) and online school grades are designated by a –DL (i.e., A-DL)*. Accountability results are based on the Arizona Department of Education’s Accountability System for the 2016-17 school year, the most recent year available. Schools opened after the 2016-17 school year are designated NYR due to the lack of available data.
*The Arizona Department of Education has not yet finalized letter grade accountability for Alternative, Online, and Small Schools for the 2016-17 school year.
