This APS tuition free high school prepares students for professional careers in the digital arts.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 3, 2011

Digital Arts and Technology Academy is what a charter school should be. I worked for DATA for two and a half years, and it was a highly rewarding experience. The Principal and Assistant Principal (who has since been made principal at another school in NM) were amazingly supportive of staff, students, and parents. The students are fantastic. In a city plagued by apathy, ennui, and violence in schools, DATA is a bright beacon of education for those who can't afford private education. The teachers at DATA are rare finds. This young, energetic teaching staff is able to make learning cool for the students, who come from all over the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho area. Had I remained in New Mexico, I would gladly have continued teaching there. I don't expect I'll ever find a school with as much positive energy and big-family feel as DATA.

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.
