P R Leyva is a large middle school with many extra curricular activities in sports, arts, music, and educational clubs. I have had two children attend this school. The teachers are highly educated, provide a caring environment, and challenge students to do their best.

I really like this school. We come from Callifornia where my daughter struggled. She wasnt getting the help she needed for her to complete her school work and homework. At PR Leyva my daughter recieves assistance from the teachers when needed and her she is now an honor roll student. I believe this is a wonderful school.

Worse than sending your children to school in inner-city chicago.

Totally disorganized, totally chaotic! If there were any other viable alternatives in this town, I would remove my child immediately.

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.
