The Chandler Unified School District received an A grade overall based on the Arizona’s new grading system. This grading system relied significantly on Reading and Math scores taken during the statewide AIMS exam. Each school is given a label grade and a letter grade. The label grades are: excelling, highly performing, performing-plus, performing, underperforming or failing. The letter grades consist of A, B, C, D or F.

The Kyrene School District, known for its educational excellence for many years, missed the A grade by a point and landed a B grade this year. The Chandler Unified School District came out on top and continues to provide strong educational standards for families in the East Valley. Many Chandler residents support education. School initiatives passed easily through a Yes vote from residents.

The Chandler Schools’ performance is as follows:
