Indian Hills Elementary is a wonderful school with caring staff members and teachers. It's a very supportive setting for students. Teachers really care about their students and want to see them excel.

Wonderful teachers and staff. A great environment for children and incorpation of sign language is wonderful. Children learn that not all kids are the same and that is okay. No bulling policy is wonderful. And extra programs for kids that need extra help and those who are gifted. Teachers who really care about their students succeding.

I have taught at Indian Hills Elementary School for more than fifteen years. The students love attending our school. The students received a survey in 2008 which clearly showed that they felt safe and happy attending Indian Hills. Also, the survey indicated that our students enjoyed the positive learning environment of the school. The teachers genuinely care for their students and always consider their students' needs to be first priority.

Great building. Great Teachers. Poor Staff. The teachers care for their students and students care about their teachers. I believe that the school could be better if they had a little (hmm, A LOT) effort from parents of the students that attend the school. Overall, it's one of the best in the schools in the city of Gallup, New Mexico. Try to find a better one without paying tutition.

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.
