Academics are top notch....strong AP and Honors curriculum. Extra curricular offerings are diverse and fill all interests. Competetive sports programs. The band program is wonderful and expanding all the time. For being a fairly new school, Volcano Vista has made a strong name for itself and I couldn't be happier with the experience my kids are getting!

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.
