Two North Valley schools—Anthem School and Diamond Canyon School—got the coveted A+ rating last month from the Arizona Educational Foundation, an independent nonprofit that awarded the top ranking to 52 Arizona public schools statewide this year.

Schools are evaluated based on student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment data. “The application and evaluation process for this program is comprehensive and rigorous,” said AEF Executive Director Kim Graham.

Other DVUSD schools in our area that received the award in recent past years (the award is based in part on a school’s stability and can be touted for  3-½ years):

Sandra Day O’Connor High School (2018)
Canyon Springs STEM Academy (2016)
Gavilan Peak School (2016)
Stetson Hills School (2016)
