I'm very happy with Sunrise Elementary School. I have 4 children, ranging in age from 4 to 23, so I've had a lot of experience with elementary schools. The teachers at Sunrise are caring and intelligent. My children are in the gifted range, which schools tend to ignore while they try to play keep-up with the slower students. Not Sunrise. They work with us and encourage my children. They've provided us with projects and accelerated work to do at home, which we love. Teach your children to love learning and show them that YOU love it too! Then they can go to the worst schools and still excel in life!

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.
