Double Eagle is great school that is always looking for ways to be even better! We have the best administration and a wonderful and supportive PTA! Not to mention the amazing students!

Double Eagle is a woderfulo school because of the student and parent involvement. Our PTA is so active in all of our activities. They support the students and teachers. Our teachers are also very involved with not just the students, but with all the activities that are put on by the school.

DE is a great place because the children are actively involved in their own learning. Parents care about their children's education and volunteer as much as possible. We strive to always be the best in all areas.

My daughter is in 4th grade. She has been at Double Eagle since kindergarten, and I can honestly say, this has been another great year. The teachers and administration are some of the most dedicated and professional people I have seen, and they truly care about each and every child. My daughter has always loved her teachers and has made amazing academic progress. Mrs. Hoberg has done a great job of making parents feel welcome, and keeping us informed of school news. We feel truly blessed to be a part of such a great elementary school!

I am the parent of two children who attend Double Eagle. This school is first class. The teachers are enthusiastic and caring. Principal Hoberg is an excellent administrator who communicates regualrly with parents. Parents are encouraged to volunteer in the classroom and I feel like a true partnership exists between myself and my childrens teachers. The PTA is exceptional. Truly the top elementary school in Albuquerque!.

I have two children who attend Double Eagle and have been extremely pleased with the quality of the teachers and the administration. Everyone works very hard to ensure the students are safe and exposed to a challenging curriculum. The PTA is supportive and the parental involvement is very high. Double Eagle is an excellent school!

I am a proud parent of three beautiful children who are all in attendance at Double Eagle. I have been very pleased with the level of professionalism as well as the hard work and dedication my child's teachers have shown. These ladies do not get paid enough! As for the parent complaining about homework, I feel it's the parent's job to make sure homework is done properly and wouldn't expect it back graded. Don't the teachers have enough to do already without checking whether parents are doing their jobs? This school is a success because of the partnership between SUPPORTIVE parents and teachers.

I am appalled that this school allows teachers to keep their sick children with them in the classrooms, and when things like head lice are found in the school, noone is notified. children are left unsupervised while teacher leaves for appts. classrooms are over crowded with up to 25 kids. someone needs to step in and take over this school and get it on track. academics are not even taught on a regular basis and homework is never looked at. goes into the shredder.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 26, 2010

Parent involvement is great. Without it, the children would not survive in this school. There is a great lack of actual learning going on and way too much play time and movies, and unnecessary field trips. Homework is sent out but never looked at by the teachers. Very disappointed in this school.

It is a beautiful school with an awesome staff and incredable programs for the kiddos!

Crowding problem solved. Now that the school has been rezoned, there are smaller classes. As always, the teaching staff is caring and dedicated. I have a kid with special needs and have been pleased.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted March 28, 2007

Very little offered in extracurricular activities, especially PE related. My children didn't seem to be very challenged by the course work, but still one of the best schools in Albuquerque, although schools in the east and other areas of the country are on a much higher plane.

What a disappointment. An overcrowded school and lots of chaos. I dont know how teachers are able to teach in a room full to capacity. Homework, if it gets assigned, is rarely graded and returned. I call this daycare for older kids....

We had a very good 3-4th grade experience at DEES. The PTA is very involved and help make up for the lack of funding provided by the district for local (well-performing) schools that don't qualify for grant monies. The PTA funds music and art programs to bring them up to a level considered minimal in other states. Teachers are very receptive to parent input and accessible to the children. A happy place to be as well!

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.
