I have my 2 boys at Lew Wallace and they absolutely love their school. The whole staff know my whole family by face and name, it's a very comfortable environment. My 2 boys have flourished,especially my kindergartener who is always so excited to learn. I cant wait until my daughter can go to Lew Wallace and recieve the special attention that the whole staff gives to every student there.

Lew Wallace is a wonderful school. The teachers are enthusiastic and the administration cares about their children. The class size is only 20-25 students.

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.
