The administrators and faculty at this school are truly amazing and caring. My daughter needed special circumstances due to an illness and they are the only ones willing to give her what she needed. They have made her finishing her high school education enjoyable and rewarding. No political hoopla here just true caring for the children and their needs. I don't know what we would have done with out ATDSCS.

This is a great school. The learning communities are fantastic. The staff is very involved with the students. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.

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.
