As I attended all four years of my high school years I must say they do prepare you for college as well as building your network & knowing your community. I don't know about since I've left but there were a handful of good teachers, who were willing to help the willing. On the bad note they got a little to involved in a students personal life & almost made it the topic of there conversations. Like there were some good teachers there were bad teachers like in all schools who tend to favor students. I personally would not send my child there unless I looked over my other options.

Very good college prep school, but very left sided. Blanket permission has to be given at the begginning of the school year and if not given, assumed to be given.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
