Lack of teachers, students run the school, sure it might be 94% hispanic but half of that 94% is %100 mexican so the teachers spend alot of the classes time trying to explain to the mexican students of what going on in class, so with that said the true american born student suffers academically, and the school rating will always remain low, until something is done.

The School could Use Better Coaching. Not many teachers teach. Some classes you are just sitting there doing nothing, like watchin a movie. or doin literally nothing.

When i first sent my children to Carlos F. Vigil Middle School it was brand new. It was a great and beautiful school, EPS did a really great job! I was impressed as well with the teachers and staff who kept the students in line. All this talk about a horrible middle school..not true.

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.
