Posted November 17, 2011

We are new to the Albuquerque area and my son who is in the 7th grade has been welcomed with open arms. Although the school is in an older church building, to my surprise the things my child is learning with more one on one attention is amazing. He has made friends easily and I love the idea of him staying with the same smaller class size all day. The school offers free breakfast and lunch and the students all seem to know each other well. Both teachers my son interacts with have been wonderful and have reached out to me. The administrators are great with the kids and treat them all as indivuiduals and with respect.

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.
