Harelson School Letter Grade Information

Dear Harelson Families,

Recently the Arizona School Board approved the cut scores for 2018-19 letter grades and school letter grades were released.  Harelson received an "A" rating according to these metrics and adopted cut scores.  I am so proud of our students and teachers for their dedication and hard work!  There are many important considerations in determining what makes a school truly excellent.  Arizona’s A-F Accountability System for K-8 schools primarily calculates these letter grades on the performance of 3rd-6th grade students on the AzMerit English Language Arts and Math tests, as well as the AZELLA English language learning test for English Language Learners in grades K-6.

We are so very proud of this achievement, however, regardless of our letter grade I truly believe Harelson is an amazing and one-of-a-kind place for students!
