In Bagdad, both Bagdad Elementary School and Bagdad High School received "B" grades. 

In the Humboldt Unified School District, Humboldt Elementary School received an "A". On the other end of the scale, Glassford Hill Middle School received a "D*". The "*" indicates that the grade is under appeal. Bradshaw Mountain Middle School brought home a "C" on its report card; while the other schools, Lake Valley Elementary School, Mountain View Elementary School, Coyote Springs Elementary School and Liberty Traditional School all brought home a "B".

Chino Valley Unified Schools had a solid "B" on their report cards, including Del Rio Elementary School, Heritage Middle School and Chino Valley High School. 

Mayer High School and Mayer Elementary School both rated a "D". 

Ashfork Joint Unified School District was ranked #1 in Arizona with an A grade and total points of 165. Both the Ash Fork Elementary School and the Ash Fork Midle School scored quite high, earning "A's". However, the Ash Fork High School scored an overall "C". 

According to the information presented by the State Superintendent's Office, "A-F letter grades are based on the weighting of student performance on the AIMS tests and student academic growth from year to year, along with additional points awarded for high English Language Learner reclassifications, and significant reductions in dropout rates. Every school and district receives a report card with a grade that reflects their annual academic profile."
