CHS has a new principal, Christina Rigtrup and she has made a difference not only for the students, but for the staff. She is great!


Posted October 16, 2008

My son went from attending a school in California with 2800 students to Cobre High and he loves it. The kids were very friendly and welcoming. He also joined the Varsity Football team and could not beleive just how welcoming they were to him, he never expected it. I also give credit to the parents in the community in which raised their boys with respect!

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.
