Posted August 2, 2008

My older kids went here and it was good all the time alot of interaction with the kids and teachers and i loved being there all the time for everthing with my kids and principal and teachers were always there also. Now i am not so sure about this school it has lost everything it used to stand for and the kids dont want to do anything at all in class with involving with activities and concerts and sports or telling us when something is happening because don't care to have us see anything going on at school with them. It is changed in the last 3 years and not happy at all with the school.

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.
