As a former student's parent, I would love to let everyone know that Capitan is the greatest place to send your children. We were from out of state, and everyone made things so easy to adjust to. The students, the staff, and all parents have made this one of the best schools my daughter has ever attended. And being that she may have another chance to attend, I pray, that we will have the opportunity to make this school her home once again. Although by the time we get to Capitan, she will be in High School. Thanks to everyone in middle school for helping my daughter to succeed and see her true potential. Sincerely, A Louisiana Parent

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.
