The Teachers are ok but most of the children can't talk to anyone and if they have a problem at home the school only makes it worse
—Submitted by a parent


Posted September 2, 2004

Esperanza Elementary has some of the finest teachers the state of New Mexico has to offer. Unfortunately, they also have some of the worst. Poor administrative leadership has created an environment of hostility and in-fighting among the staff. As a result, the overall 'teamwork' of staff, student, and parent is severely lacking. The basic attitude at Esperanza is that whatever is done to a student is okay because the majority of parents will not stand up for their children and how they are treated. And for the most part, that is exactly how the parents respond. Parent involvement is encouraged on the surface but only if it is blind obedience without question of the practices one might witness. Safety and the general welfare of the students is completely dependant on who is supervising them in that moment, as these are not high priorities for the administration.

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.
