Ironwood Elementary School receives a "C" Letter Grade
After two years of no letter grades from the Arizona Department of Education, the official letter grade scores for Marana Unified School District have been released.
Ironwood Elementary School received a "C" Letter Grade. A complete report of Marana Schools’ grades are posted on the District website.
“While we are disappointed in receiving a letter grade of “C”, this grade does not tell the full story of Ironwood Elementary, our dedicated teachers and staff, and our commitment to helping students be their best. We are confident that the proactive work we are doing to improve student achievement will have us quickly at a “B” or higher by next year,” said Aaron Johnson, principal.
About ADE Letter Grades
On October 31, ADE released A-F School letter grades based on data from the 2021-22 school year. The Letter Grade system measures student proficiency and annual growth in key areas including English Language Arts, Math, Science, and literacy as well as readiness to transition to the next step in their education or career. Other factors such as performance on standardized tests, attendance, special education inclusion, college and career readiness reports, and high school graduation rates are included in the score.
Ironwood Elementary School Profile
All MUSD schools created custom profiles that provide families and the public with a snapshot of their school and include information on clubs, special classes, demographics, standardized testing grades, and more. Profiles are separate from ADE letter grades, however, they provide additional insight into each school’s culture, programs, and people.
