• 2018–2019 A–F Letter Grades

    November 1, 2022


    Dear Gilbert Public Schools Families,

    The Arizona Department of Education released 2021-22 School Letter Grades this week.  The state’s ‘Accountability System’ is designed to empower schools to achieve and increase success for their students by providing districts and schools with feedback on areas of strength and those that may need additional focus and enrichment.  

    Schools earn a letter grade based on a range of metrics including proficiency and growth in key subject areas, graduation rates, subgroup proficiency improvement, acceleration and readiness measures, and college and career readiness indicators.

    The Letter Grades used are as follows:

    A = Excellent

    B = Highly Performing

    C = Performing

    D = Minimally Performing 

    F = Failing


    In Gilbert Public Schools, we are extremely proud of all of our students and staff and their achievements. The majority of our schools, 87%, achieved an A or B letter grade for 2021-22, rating them as excellent or highly performing by the Arizona Department of Education; 21 of our schools received an ‘A’.  As a district, we appreciate everything that goes into these assessments and recognize the ‘Letter Grade’ system as a useful measure of academic progress, providing opportunities for celebration and also for continued improvement.  

    We also acknowledge that the ‘Letter Grades’ work alongside other measurements of the high-performing culture and climate that our dedicated staff create every day on all of our campuses.  Our goal has always been and will continue to be to put our students first, delivering a well-rounded, high-quality educational experience for all.  

    We appreciate you choosing Gilbert Public Schools, and we are proud of all that our students and staff have accomplished over the past academic year.
