My son just finished kindergarten at GOK. Let me tell you, this is an excellent school! The parental involvement, quality of teachers, and library/reading programs are awesome!

My two sons, 4th grade and 2nd grade, have been at GOK only a few months, though I've been impressed with the school so far. The library and the librarian, Annie Huggins, are incredible. The homework in 2nd grade is very easy compared to what we were used to in parochial school -- not much challenge. The 4th grade curriculum does offer some challenges. Students have P.E. once a week, music once a week, but I don't think there is an art teacher. Parents seem very involved and have many opportunities to volunteer if they want. Overall, we are happy with the school

My two children have attended Georgia O'keeffe Elementary from Kinder through 3rd grade. We have had a wonderful experience while there. Teachers: nurturing and inovative. My children continue to love school. Parent involvement: welcomed and encouraged at school or home. I volunteered in the classrooms and library at least 3 days a week. The principle: outstanding, benefit of the students as her top priority, open to new ideas teachers/parents have to increase student learning, gets the job done. i.e. The state mandated full day kindergarten, but did not provide extra funding. On the first day of kindergarten, my son had a room, books, furniture and a fabulous, experienced teacher. Negatives--the state does not fully fund art, music, language classes, but our school extends the programs slightly, academic curriculum is not as rigorous as other states.

An outstanding public school. The teachers are terrific. The students are overwhelmingly positive about school. Parents volunteer an astonishing number of hours. What a great school!

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.
