My children both attend Mosaic and have since Kindergarten. Both are very bright and both have attention issues. Every classroom is a multi-age environment and differentiation is the key in all areas, academics, social and behavior. Students have many chances to move around with breaks when needed, opportunity to change seating as needed, work in small group and large group and individually. Each child gets a lot of individual attention and work is geared to whatever level the student is on in any given area. My kids love going to school and feel like they are well-known and well-loved by teachers.

Mosaic Academy is creative, staffed by dedicated professionals who love what they do. They are still educating students in vital ways.

Posted December 19, 2008

My daughter began attending Mosaic when it was established in 2006 (5th grade). This school teaches students concepts and enables each student to apply those concepts in a variety of situations rather 'teaching to the test'. Because teachers don't rely on textbooks, both students and teachers are required to employ a multitude of resources to study a given subject - just like in the professional world, there is no short answer in a text book! She has been exposed to a variety of ideas, concepts, situations and I feel she is receiving an education that will allow her to be productive in anything she attempts.

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.
