I believe Alamosa could be a better school if the staff was a little more open to listening to the parents of the children in this school rather then just dismissing the concerns that the parents have I also believe that Erica Hiladgo should stop stomping around the school treeting children and parents like they are prisoner's in a holding cell she is not very nice or easy to talk to .

I went to this school..This school is excellent!! they treat everyone the same! the teachers are great too! in the end of the month they have parties celebrating their students for their great work! This school ROCKS!

Im proud to say my children did attend this school thae past two years 05-07. The teachers are great with their students, consistant, fair and very helpful to students and parents. Their accademics are excellent in my opinion. Unfortunatlly we have left the district so our children no longer go to Alamosa...But we are seriously thinking about selling our recently purchased home to move back to out home school we call ALAMOSA.

My child attended Alamosa the last three years and she had the best experience ever. The teachers are top of the line. Every one she had was knowledgable, hardworking, and extremely caring. Alamosa has dual language classes. The point is to get the kids speaking English. There are also English as a Second Language teachers at every grade level. The school could do better if more parents would get involved. I noticed very little parent involvement compared to other schools my child has been in. Alamosa is a great school with good teachers and administration. They care very much about the kids and do the best they can. Alamosa has higher test scores than most scools in the neighborhood.

This school use to be a good school at one point. I feel that the teachers, staff, faculty do not take the time to care about the children. They don't address issues when it comes to children being picked on or bullied. I feel that the only reason they are there is just for a paycheck.

This school has gone down hill for the past few years. The administration has no clue about the students in her school. Don't believe what papers tell you. Inside the school is another story. These team of teachers have learned to write well enough to hide what really is happening. I agree that the programs do not exist but they tell parents that it is true. They need to shake the tree and let the rotten fruit fall off. This school was a great community school at one time. Sadly to say it no longer has that reputation anymore.

This school has not addressed any of my child's needs. As you can see by the ethnicity of the school, it's over 90% Hispanic, and they have NO BILINGUAL PROGRAM!! They say they do, but they don't. They just shove those kids in one big classroom, and ignore them. They take absolutely no consideration for their Spanish-speaking population. I hope with enough complaints to the district, they will do something about this school, and the leadership!

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.
