I Dont Like This School.........I mean, i dont see 1st-3rd graders learning to read....They ''rarely'' have bilingual class, if they did, they dont do it good. Would i would reccomend this school is to actually help the students read and have half the day for bilingual, the students wont go far if they dont learn how to read and practice more their language...

I think Mary Ann Binford has a lot to offer. There are wonderful teachers who care about the students and their success. My daughter loves her teacher and she has grown so much since starting there.

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.
