Congratulations Sandra Day O'Connor High School


We are pleased to announce that Sandra Day O’Connor High School has earned the coveted recognition of an A+ School of Excellence. This is the first time that Sandra Day O’Connor

High School has earned this prestigious recognition and something to be very proud of. Our school was evaluated in the areas of student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment data.

The evaluation is based on a lengthy written application submitted by the school and a rigorous site visit conducted by a team of trained judges through the Arizona Educational Foundation. The school provided demographic information, a description of current programs and practices, documentation of parent and community involvement, and a profile of the school’s principal and the school community’s commitment to excellence, equity, service and sustained high achievement. The process involved collaboration among all stakeholders including students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members.
