My daughter goes to this school she is in gifted but the gifted program is in need of change. When she started to struggle in her classes I was never notified by any of her teachers untill it was almost too late to help her. She loves this school and so do I but she will not be returning due to the lack of teacher to parent communication.

This was one of the schools I substituted at for two years, and I want to assist in the betterment of the children there.

Unfortunately, the principal and administration of this school does not know about the zero tolerance policy for bullying. My daughter is afraid to go to school because she is being physically and verbally bullied. I am trully dissapointed in the school and will have to take this to the schoolboard

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.
