Many Tempe elementary schools boosted their writing scores on AIMS tests last spring, while some Tempe 10th-graders scored nearly as high in all three subjects as their competitive counterparts in neighboring Ahwatukee Foothills.

In most subjects at most Tempe high schools in the Tempe Union High School District, the percentage of 10th-graders that passed Arizona's Instrument to Measure Standards exam surpassed the state averages, according to the Arizona Department of Education.

At Tempe's Corona del Sol High School, the percentage of 10th-graders passing AIMS in reading, writing and math was nearly as high as the percentage at Ahwatukee Foothills' traditionally excelling Desert Vista High School, also in the Tempe Union district. At Corona, 89 percent of 10th-graders passed writing, compared to 91 percent at Desert Vista.
