Houston is a wonderful school. The staff and administration are dedicated to the success of the students and work hard to meet their individual needs. Great place for learning!

Great atmosphere. Parents will love that these kids are here to enjoy school and treat it with respect. Academic program is great as well as extra caricular activites; such as sports, choir, art, music, pep club, and a great student council and NJHS.

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.
