Sandpiper was designated the "A" Accountability Achievement Profile as designated by the AZ Department of Education in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The "A" Achievement designates an excellent level of performance for student achievement and individual student learning growth.

Sandpiper ranks in the top 5% of all Arizona Schools based on academic growth and achievement according to the Arizona Department of Education.


“A” schools demonstrate an excellent level of performance.  For example, an “A” school may have the large majority of their students passing AIMS and AIMS A and typical academic growth in at least the 70th percentile.
