Teachers and staff are very good overall and my 2 kids really like it there. However the new principal has already made many grievous missteps this year, two of which directly affected my son, and we are only 1 month into the school year. Not sure where they found her, but it makes me question APS administration's abilities. My wife and I are considering pulling both kids from Corrales and home-schooling them.

Corrales Elementary is a great school. The staff and community members work hard to keep the school at the heart of the community. The adults are kind and inclusive. The teachers's are conscientious, helpful and approachable, for the most part. The only unsafe aspect of the school is the way some parents and community members drive.

There was very poor communication between the teacher and us and my child did not feel welcome here at all. Overall it was not a good experience and glad my child is no longer attending here.

Totally miserable experience! My son's teacher is rude, unhelpful and negative. She has been very difficult to try to communicate with either written communication or talking to her. I don't feel like my son is learning anything here. There are a couple parents involved but they are not receptive to new parents at all. The PTA is very disorganized and also not welcoming.

This is a wonderful school. Can't say enough about the teachers here! The front office could certainly try to be nicer and more informed though but I feel like my child is very safe here and well cared for!

I am confused at all the positive reviews here. Too many kids in classes and, same as another commenter, I have two children at the school. I don't know what's going on at the school, but it is certainly not a positive experience for me or my children. Having spent 3 years as a substitute teacher in another state, I am shocked at the issues here. Do not recommend this school at all.

NO STARS! Terrible school. The reviews about children that need a little extra help, it is not here. Two of my children attended there, one of them is very smart and picks up on everthing. The other child has always needed a little help and is very shy. The teacher that had my boy smart boy always had good thigs to say. The other teacher suggested that a social worker might help him (my shy boy). The school seems like they only want to keep the children that learn WITHOUT any help. In contrast, try to get rid of the children that go to school to learn from the teachers. The saying "No child left behind, yah right, the school will insult the parents and outcast your child until you take them out of the school. BEWARE, teachers that dont teach, just looking for a free pay check and high school rating by getting rid of children not up to par in their eyes. That is my opinion

Teachers that care. Beautiful campus. Happy Kids!

We love Corrales Elementary for all the beautiful students in the community and the Study Buddy program that pairs community volunteers with students.


Posted October 13, 2010

This is an excellent school that puts the kids first in everything they plan and do. the community works hard to foster the childrena along as they were each a member of the community's family.

Corrales Elementary School got my two kids off to a great start and now my granddaughter attends. Teachers and parents are very supportive, great COMMUNITY within the school. Long tradition of good programming and excellent teachers. Safe environment teaching good relationship skills. Outstanding counselor!

Great programs and teachers! This learning environment fosters mental growth thats lacking in many other elementary schools.


Posted October 12, 2010

It is the best! Very active - friendly staff - great programs.


Posted October 9, 2010

a fine example of dedicated teachers and community active parents. Every child is embraced in the learning system at school and at home.

My children attend Corrales Elementary currently. They have been apart of this school for 4 years. This school is great! The teachers are caring, firm when needed, and really give the kids a sense of being apart of a team. I wouldn't take my children to any other school in New Mexico! One of daughters does have a learning disability and the special education team which we work with has been awesome to say the least! She couldn't read at the beginning of 1st grade and was able to before the middle of the school year! I am more than pleased with corrales elementary school! Also, you never have to worry about outsiders being in or around the school. The teachers all recognize the parents and/or other family members who pick up the children and if they don't they are very quick to ID anyone! I LOVE that!

The best of the best? Really? I would give Corrales Elementary NO STARS if it were a choice. I would not recommend this school to anybody especially parents of special needs children. My child's so-called teacher was incompetent, inexperienced, and spent more time texting than teaching. My child did not get an education while attending this school, and we lost valuable time that we will never get back. The staff treated my child with contempt instead of compassion and for this they should be ashamed of themselves. If you're looking for a good school for your child, consider someplace other than Corrales Elementary.

Posted August 4, 2010

We were really looking forward to sending our child to Corrales Elementary - we are part of the Corrales community and all of the school reviews, both online and word-of-mouth, were very positive. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. Our son has special needs, and we were lead to believe that his needs would be addressed and supported here. Corrales Elementary teachers are not qualified to or interested in educating children with special needs. My child was treated and looked upon as a classroom burden. This school may serve typically developing children well, but please consider another option if your child requires special needs support.

My daughter has been at this school now for three years. She receives special education services and we really believe she is getting the best of the best! Love the community feel of the school and so many of the children accept my little one as just another friend/student. They don't 'see' her disability, and I compliment the staff for that! Principal is very approachable, front staff always friendly and professional, nurse is very kind and the teachers are fabulous!

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.
