    Akimel A-al is an “A” School

    Based on the spring 2014 AIMS scores, for the second year in a row, Akimel A-al Middle School has been named an “A” school from the Arizona Department of Education. The ADE letter grades consist of a combination of the percentage of students passing the reading and math tests and a measure of improvement from the previous year’s scores. This designation is indicative of the High Standards; High Achievement; High Expectations for All that we demonstrate at Akimel A-al. Congratulations Rattlers!
