I dont feel from grades 1-3, the children are obtaining an adequate educations, especially in MATH. There needs to be more tutors availble, as we are not fluent in the current math and many times cannot help our grandchildren. Our grandchild is in the 4th grade and failing and we feel helpless...... extremely concerned grandparents.

The school is ok but I notice my sons teacher is always absent. Looking to change schools.

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.
