Lavaland has a new administration that is committed to improving every aspect of the school. After school activities, community activities, a parent teacher organization and new technology are all coming back to Lavaland.

If your child wants to feel safe dont send them here. There are not strong enough consequences for bullies, so they continue there actions. Very disappointed in this school my child will not return

I as a parent of 2 children at lavaland was very disappointed with how the school has gone done hill the past 3 years. All of the childrens school functions were eliminated Example: Fall carnival, field trips, valentine dance and I was never informed of any PTA involvement, not once last your did I receive a letter or note from my kids that there was a PTA meeting for parents to attend. My third grader never went on one field trip last year. This school has gone to the dogs! No wonder parent involvment is obsolete. There was no parent notification.

Lavaland is trying to improve. They have a lot of work to do, but they are trying.

Posted April 10, 2008

being that I have 2 of my 3 girls at Lavaland, which is the elementary school that my husband and I went to, it make me sad to see this school rated so low. I have'nt really seen anything change at this school. There and no activities that my girls can be involved in and next year when my second oldest moves to John Adams, I will probally move my youngest to another 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.
