The Arizona Department of Education released its annual report card for schools throughout the state. In Pima County, there was only one school that received an F grade, Tucson Preparatory Academy.

It is an alternative school that works with at-risk students.

Across the rest of Southern Arizona, there were no F grades.

The Department of Education uses a number of factors including proficiency in math, science, and language arts, and graduation rates to determine school grades.

You can search schools throughout the state to see their grades.
