Our District’s Straight-A Report Card

The 2021-2022 A-F School Letter Grades have just been released by the Arizona State Board of Education, and we are so proud to announce that all 7 schools in our district have received an A! Who doesn’t love a straight A report card?



A is considered an Excellent rating defined by the following:

  • Distinguished performance on statewide assessment

  • Significant student growth

  • Students on track to proficiency

  • Overall performance is significantly higher than state average

  • And for the high school, high 4-year graduation rates


Despite the disruption of a pandemic, the students and faculty have worked hard to maintain the excellence that has always been associated with our district. Taking into consideration the effects of COVID-19, the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) has not released School Letter Grades since the 2018 - 2019 school year. Usually all schools across the state receive an annual letter grade A through F based on proficiency data collected.

We want to commend this high level of proficiency and recognize all the hard work that made this possible. Congratulations, CFSD!


How did Catalina Foothills High School students perform?

Since the A-F letter grade system for high school proficiency is now largely based on how students perform on the ACT, which is taken in the 11th grade, it’s important to recognize that our students performed well on that test compared to their peers across the state. For the purpose of A-F letter grade accountability, proficiency is based on full academic year students, which is defined as students who were enrolled within the first 10 school days and continuously enrolled until the first week day in May 2022. ACT English language arts (ELA) results are based on a composite of a student’s ACT English, ACT Reading, and ACT Writing tests.
