I sponsor a young student at this school. I am a retired educator with over 40 years experience both in the classroom and in administration. The facility was very clean, had a wonderful atmosphere and the students were happy and well disciplined. I was very impressed with the school, the personnel and most of all the instructor in the classroom. Students were working on computers, developing multistep essays and handling projects requiring critical thinking skills. The teacher was very organized and giving students the special individualized attention that they needed. It was an active learning communty classroom. Keep up the good work!!!!

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.
