Aztec High works really hard to support their kids and ensure they are ready for college. I haven't found a teacher yet that hasn't been understanding of our children's need and our expectations.

This school is the greatest in the four courners area. It is powerful in all subjects. It's academics are strong and its athletics are strong. Although the school colors are ugly it is a great place to learn. Black and Orange. It is a blessing to the town. Great school for any student.

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.
