We transferred from out of state and had low expectations due to the very high quality education we had previously experienced and reviews of Hobb's schools. Stone has been excellent both academically and socially. The teachers are great and the principal is amazing. Test scores are high because the students are encouraged to learn and grow. Stone has a unique art program that is sponsored by the parent teacher association- PIE. The parents and teachers are so involved in the school and it is a very welcoming environment. My kids really love going here and have learned a lot. I definitely recommend Stone over all other K-5's in Hobbs or surrounding areas. You will be pleasantly shocked at its wonderfulness!

Both of my children have attended this school since kindergarten. The principal is second to none. He truly cares about each student and wants them to succeed and tries to give them every tool they need to do so. The parents are very involved at Stone which is great to see. The vast majority of teachers here are excellent. LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!

As a former teacher at Stone, I can assure you that the principal and staff truly care about the students in this school. I loved every minute of teaching here -- great kids, great staff, great principal!

Both of my children have attended Stone since kindergarten. I personally believe there is not a better school in New Mexico. The staff is wonderful. They truly love the students and help prepare them academically, emotionally, socially, and behaviorally for the future. Stone deserves an award for being OUTSTANDING!!

the school has a no talking rule in the morning while waiting to go to class. if they do they get yelled at by staff. principle more concerned about shirts tucked in than how kids feel or how they are doing.

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.
