Jornada Elementary School is a great school! I did a lot of research in deciding on a school for my child. Jornada came out on top in every category, so I chose to send my son there as an out of district transfer student. What a great decision on my part. The teachers have been great, as have been the administration and the after school program and staff. I recommend this school to any parent for any child hands down!

In my childs 4 years at Jornada K-3 his class size was always over 20 Children per teacher. As concerned parents we wrote a letter and got signatures asking for an aid for the classes. We were denied by the principal all 4 years and had to take it to the school superintendent all 4 years. 3 out of 4 years we got our teacher help and the last year we didn't due to changing of superintendents. It's pretty sad when the Las Cruces public schools can't even follow federal guidelines regarding student to teacher ratios.

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.
