My son has attended Sandia for 2 years now and I have a few problems as far as my son getting beat up I do not feel it was handled the way it should have been Mr Brady has heard my complaints and is doing all he can to remedy them But Some of the teachers are wonderful there are a few I feel should be more concerned but one I love to death is Mrs. Collela she is so awesome my son had her last year and he has some emotional problems and she was so good to him and was so involved in his treatment I have to say if we had more teachers like her our children would love school so much more Thank you Mrs. Collela for having the heart you do. For the children you guide every day. You truly make the difference.

My children have attended Sandia since 1997 and I wouldn't even consider another school. Mr. Brady is the best, he goes the extra mile for 'his' kids, and you can tell that he genuinely cares about them. The school has a tech lab, band, and chorus programs, as well as a gifted program. Parent involvement is not only allowed, but strongly encouraged and well supported. The school is clean and well maintained. They make every effort to upgrade the school and keep curriculums current. Teachers care about their students and staff goes out of their way to ensure the children are cared for.

My son has attended Sandia Elementary from Kinder. and I have been very pleased with how well the school is run. We have had wonderful teachers and Mr Brady really cares about his students. He enforces all the cares behaviors, and does not tolerate any negativity in the school. We sadly are moving and the worse part is that my son has to leave Sandia behind. I thank them for everything that they have done for my sons learning experience. He has enjoyed it.

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.
