I love the teachers at McKinley, but often feel as though administration is not real concerned with the same things that concern parents.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 15, 2008

McKinley offers opportunities for each child to succeed. They treat each child on an individual basis, and the kids know teachers/staff are invested in their success.

McKinley is the best! The teachers are great, the staff is great and the kids have really progessed. Looking forward to another great year. Courtney Watson

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.
