I HAVE 2 KIDS THAT GO TO DURANES I REALLY LIKE THIS SCHOOL WITH THE SMALL CLASSROOMS IT IS EASIER FOR THE KIDS TO LEARN AND HAVE MORE SUPPORT FROM THEIR TEACHERS. IT IS ALSO REALLY GREAT HOW THEY ARE CONTINUING WITH THE ALL YEAR ROUND IT IS VERY HELPFUL FOR THE KIDS SO THEY DONT GET SO BORED IN THE SUMMER. THE FUNNY PART IS ONE OF MY CHILDS TEACHER USE TO BE MY FIRST GRADE TEACHER WHEN I WENT THERE WHEN I WAS A CHILD ITS GOOD TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE THAT TEACHER DEDICATION FOR OUR CHILDREN AND THEIR STUDENTS. I WOULD RECOMMENT DURANES ELEMENTARY FOR ANY CHILD.

I have always liked Duranes Elementary I believe it is a really good school due to the fact it is not big in class room size and how many students to a teacher, My daughter has learned alot from Duranes. I was happy to know that my daughter was able to attend duranes where this is the elementary school i went to when i was in grade school over 20 years ago. It was nice to return back and bring back memories now i can have good times and more memories with my first grader as she attends there. Duranes is very involved with the students learning and also home life they have helped us with school supplies also they have donated food baskets for our home which is very appreciated.

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.
