My daughter is learning so much more than the required curriculum at Barry Elementary. She is learning character skills through social interaction with not only students but the wonderful staff as we'll. these are traits that will be utilized greatly for her success in this ever changing society. I am a proud parent and supporter of Barry Elementary!

Our three children had wonderful experiences at Barry Elementary. It is a warm and inviting school with wonderful art work on every wall, and a staff that makes you feel welcome from the front office to the custodial crew and the highly motivating teachers. We were extremely happy with Barry and gladly say that our children gained a wonderful educational foundation by attending this little shining star of a school.

Barry is a excellent school. The staff members extend a warm welcome to you when you visit. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure that every student is reaching their full potential. We have been very pleased with the teachers our children have had and the wonderful learning environment they created for them to grow academically. My children were shown that learning can be fun as well as important and with that knowledge, the possibilities are endless.

We really loved and miss Barry. The staff is inviting. The school has wonderful art work through out. The teachers are great. The kids are well cared for and carefully looked after at the end of the day as well.

As a teacher, I have extremely high expectations of my students. As a parent, I expect a quality education for my child. Barry is innovative in incorporating multiple intelligences on a daily basis in all areas of the curriculum. Parents play a major role at Barry in many different areas. With the completion this year of the Art and Science Room, we are excited about the possibilities for next year! The SuccessMaker Computer Lab is awesome in encouraging student success. All teachers are 'Highly Qualified' in New Mexico's new levels of teacher ratings. With the solid educational foundation he has received at Barry, I am assured that my son will continue to be successful in his future educational endeavors.

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.
