Posted August 11, 2011

My daughter has been there since kindergarden, she is now enter the 5th grade, and has required some special needs classes. All of the teachers and the principal have been great. They maintain open communication with the parents on all levels. I was hesitant at first do to the diversity in the neighborhood, but since then I refuse to move out of the school district because of the progress my child has made there. All because the teachers, staff and principal make it a great school

I had great concerns about sending my daughter here due to the geographical location and populations served by this school. I must say, however, that they have all been unfounded because this school is great. The staff is awesome and very caring. It has been a wonderful experience for four years now.

This school, is way more then it appears. I have been a parent to 2 students at McCormick Elementary for this year only, but its only taken 6 months for them to show they DO have great morals aspects and a good academic plan for our children.

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.
