I registered my child in Mesa Verde yesterday. My child was with me at the time. I thought it very strange that both the secretary and principal did not say one word to my child. Maybe they both had bad days. But, it was the first day back for kindergartners only. Not speaking to my child makes me very leery. I looked on the schools website and the principals page is empty and has been since 2011. As the year progresses I will be writing more reviews. We can only go up from here. I hope.

Such a great school! The new principal is wonderful! My kids have had great teachers every year they have been there! I have always been welcomed into the classrooms and on field trips which I love! I do agree that they have such a good couselor! The previous nurse had been fantastic with the kids, a new one this year and she seems good as well but do not really know her yet. The best thing about the school is my kids are having a good time and liking going, doing well so to us that is what is what is most important, i would def recommend!!

Mesa Verde is an excellent school. My child has been there since Kindergarten and is now in the fourth grade. The teachers are easy to work with and the community environment is wonderful for any child.

My daughter has been at Mesa Verde for three years and we love it. She has had amazing teachers each year. They allow you to request teachers, which has been a big plus, so I have been able to put her with teachers that best fit her learning style. She is advanced for her grade level, and her teachers have always found ways to give her more advanced work and have used creative ways to keep learning exciting and fun.

I am hoping this school has gotten better now that the despot principal has been replaced. The new principal seems great. My children attended previously and I now feel fairly comfortable putting them back there. Do be careful of the teachers though. While there are brilliant instructors... there are some scary ones who have zero business being in education. The review from April 26, 2004 was exactly the same as my experience with a second grade teacher. The counselor on the other hand is amazing. he is genuine and connects with the kids... truly truly superb.

Mesa Verde has a despot for a principal, so I think the teachers are afraid to stand up for themselves and some of them tell parents one thing then report another to the principal because they don't want to get in trouble. I think most of the teachers are great, the principal is just lousy. A lot of parents are even scared of her, unaware that as a public servant, WE are HER boss, not the other way around! She has angered a lot of parents and they don't want to come volunteer anymore, or they entirely pull their children out of the school.

The school's appearance and Welcome is wonderful! But be certain to keep tabs on your child's teacher. Much discrimination and Principal siding with teacher as opposed to investigating serious issues such as: failing straight third graders (boys) and not contacting parents about concerns before failing them. Public Classroom Ridicule of your child on a daily basis; loss of child's homework, then claiming child never turns in homework; teacher doesn't follow own homework rules; reading program misunderstood by third grade teacher; child who may be a sixth grade reader doesn't advance and teacher isn't aware. Only 6 reading grades assessed over 6 week period. (Science= 6 grades; Math/Spelling 50 grades each) NM rates as next to worst in USA in education because of teachers. Due to humiliation/discrimination? It's certainly worth investigating further.
