La Merced Elementary School 5

I come from a family of educators and principals so I feel like I am extra harsh on schools and staff...with that said I have been very happy at SVE. My child has attended since 2009. I almost moved my child to another school in the district because I wanted him to attend a more established school, but after 1-2 yrs it was evident that this school was on the fast track to success. SVE is now one of the top 2 schools in Rio Rancho despite being fairly new. They have great related arts teachers and the gifted instructor is AMAZING. I volunteer quite often and I find that most of the parents that complain or have negative things to say usually have issues w/ their child anywhere they go and problems are not school specific. All children are different as are schools, and there is no one size fits all formula for success- our family recommends SVE to any parents that want to give their child a great elementary school experience, with a staff that cares and a smaller school population than other area schools.

I like this school a lot. My child came from a 'traditional school' in another state. In general, she is sufficiently challenged. I like the emphases on character & safety. I wish the whole state & this whole district would get better math programs, however.

La Merced has some of the best teachers and support staff in the Belen School district. They have a superior program for developing the reading skills of each student. Thanks to Mrs. Boyer, Mrs. Auge and their aid's.

I have had children at La Merced for the past 6 years. Staff is great. An area that needs improvement is that the school needs to inform parents about what goes on inside and outside the classroom on a more frequent basis.
