Classroom management is the biggest issue. Keeping students focused and on-task is difficult for teachers who are trying to deal with as many as 80 students in the computer lab at one time. The school has worked especially hard on classroom management for the students in 9th and 10th grades as the school has found that these students can get distracted easily.
Kingman Academy of Learning High School (KOAL) in Kingman, Ariz., was one of the first 12 charter schools in Arizona. After discovering that 25 percent of high school students were failing mathematics courses, administrators recognized they needed a solution to help bolster students' skills. In addition to piloting Edgenuity courses for 11th and 12th graders who were behind on their math requirements and at risk of not graduating, in the spring of 2011, school leaders decided to create a blended-learning math program for 9th- and 10th-grade students.

In 2013-2014 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
There are currently no past timeline events for this school.
