Rose White is gone!!!! Awesome!!!! I think both students and faculty will be a great deal happier! Being mean never gets anyone where they need to be. Just saying!!

I have Attended Barcelona Since I Was In Kindergarten,I Am Currently In 7th Grade,I Have Good Grades...Although I have had 3 Principles Attending There...One of The Following Comments On This School Was About Rose White..She Was The last Principle There And she Was Absolutely Rude to Students..too me She Felt Like a Bully To Everyone Around The Environment...Although She Was replaced...And The School Is Much Healthier..and I Highly Encourage For You To Take Your Children To Come To This Lovely School.. The Teachers Are Respectful in every Way Possible.. (: Go Bobcats!

If you are a teacher looking for a teaching position for APS or even a parent, I recommend that you stay away from Barcelona if the administer is still Rose White. If administration doesn't like you she will make your life at work miserable. Administration looks down at staff and parents. The teachers, on the other hand, are very good at what they do. Sadly, due to poor administration the atmosphere at the school is very negative. It is a bad environment for learning.

I love the staff at this school. My daughter was a 4th grader and she made so much progress. They have an entire team of teachers that switch classes there and it really made a difference with her reading and math. She made huge gains and you could tell the teachers work very well together. They also have amazing classrooms in their new building.

My daughter was there for the beginning of the 2009-2010 school year. She really loved being there and had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Brim. she exceled in her studies and was always encouraged by her taexher and staff. Although we were new to the school, the staff was always so helpfully and remember my daughter and myself. Made us really feel at home and welcome. We had to leave after the Christmas break but hope to return to Barcelona when we get home.

I rate barcelona Elementery a 8 of 10, The teachers and staff are great. I would rate it a 10 but thers is some major reconstruction going on ,and the student pick at the end of the day is nuts.If your not ther half hour early you could be waiting about 20+ minutes after the bell rings to get your child.

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.
