This not very good if your child is developmentally disabled. The principle is rude and cares only about her character then the educational well being of the child. When a concern is brought up regarding a teacher she immediatley disregards your concern and praises the teachers. I am all for a supportive principle but when it comes to a child's education the principle should give the parent concerns recognition. I would recommend one of other two schools if you are a involved parent. The principle at the other schools and all the supporting staff are welcoming, warm and when you raise a concern they do anything and everything to help assist .

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.
