Great school with succesfull athletics. However the teachers need to get more involved. Parents need to step up as well and get involved with their child's school. Many extracurricular activities to enjoy. Go panthers

I rate this school a 4 1/2 since I believe we are working hard to help students and parents become a part of the learning community at the school. Teachers are working long hours and coming up with innovative ideas to help student achievement. The administration is working overtime to help the staff address the needs of the entire district, students, teachers, parents, and related persons.

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.
