Our children attend E.G. Ross and i think the counselor, Mrs. Moulton is excellent! She has helped each of my children at different times with different issues. She responds to us as parents promptly and professionally. She is a true advocate for children, especially those with disabilities, and always does what is best for the child.She is calm and compassionate when teaching classrooms or groups or responding to an individual situation. My children talk about her all the time and definitely feel she is a safe adult at school. we are lucky to have her!

Edmund G Ross Elementary lacks leadership from the top with Amanda Stavig. The school is failing miserably due to lack of leadership, refusal to help children with their disabilities appropriately, and the principal trying to cover up all the problems with a fake smile and saying everything is fine. The school also lacks appropriate parents leadership in that the PFC is lazy and can do so much more in more creative ways. The school counselor is irresponsible and does not do what is best by children with disabilities. If you ask these people for help, they make you out to be the problem. If you dare go against them, they (Amanda Stavig and Kendra Moulton) will retaliate against you and use multiple forms of intimidation to shut you up. If you have a problem at this school, go straight to the New Mexico State Department of Education. This school will not turn around until appropriate educators and counselors are in place. It is poorly managed and is failing for many reasons. Do not send your children to this lousy excuse for a school.

I was wary about putting my child at EG Ross because of the low GreatSchools Rating and general hear-say from other people. However we gave it a shot, and I've been very impressed by the principal, teachers, and staff. They are all dedicated caring professionals who worked hard at what they do. My child is happy and challenged, and I can not be more satisfied with this school. I do think there needs to be more parents participation, but that's hardly anything we can fault the school with. Most of the parents have full time jobs they can't take time off from.

My twin boys have been at EG Ross from K-3rd (currently). I feel they have had great teachers and they have been treated as individuals and have learned a lot from each teacher. The atmosphere is great & the boys have loved going to school each year. Each teacher has prepared them for the following year. The principal is very attentive to all the kids. I was very involved at the school the first 3 years but my job does not let me be at this time. My husband & I have been really satisfied with the school up to this point.

EG Ross is a wonderful school. My son was in Kindergarten last year, and he has learned not only the basic skills, but tons more. The teachers and other staff members are a joy to know. I am so happy that he is going there... I wouldn't trade them for any other school!!!!

Both of my sons attended E. G. Ross from K to 5. Their education was extraordinary. I honestly feel that they were prepared for high school from elementary.

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.
