Not 'everyone' is going to agree that WCHS is excellent -nor any other school for that matter. However, fom what I have seen (results)--this school is excellent. They are achieving more with their Native students than 'majority' schools. Down the road for example at BHS--with a population of close to 50%--they fail to present opportunity to these talented students, including the Hispanic population which is right about 50% as well. BHS ignores--the diversity, the language, the culture each of its students hold. Unless you are a committed--get to the books student--No you probably would not like the school--because they test you, they push you hard in academics, and above all expect excellence... but they also believe in you and remind you to believe in yourself as well--to do it! This is excellence is My book.

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.
