I love this school. My kids really enjoy the staff they have. I highly recommend this school.

Zia is a very academic school. My child has attended 1st grade there, and she has been allowed to really strive- especially with reading. Zia has high expectations, and rules are enforced. They encourage children to be independent and responsible. It is commonplace to see children opening doors for others, and other such acts, as personal responsibility and manners are enforced. Zia is a tough school, and they make the kids work hard, but it is in order to bring great results.

I have two students at Zia Elementary (kindergarten and second grade). I am completely satisfied with this school. The teachers are wonderful. They make learning interesting and fun. For young students just beginning their academic career, that is a must. The principal (Mrs. Butler) is very involved and approachable. Mrs. Borden (K), Mrs. Millender (1st grade) and Mrs. Dunn (2nd grade) are absolutely fantastic teachers that go the extra mile with all their students. That's not to say the other teachers aren't just as wonderful. (I just have personal experience with those three) I would highly recommend this school.

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.
