Paul D. Henry has an excellent academic environment that encourages students to behave with exemplary manners, with a good, positive attitude, and with a determination to always do their best school work. The teachers and administrators are hard-working and extremely dedicated to the students at Paul D. Henry. This school has a positive, caring atmosphere where all students, even those students with special needs, can feel safe and welcomed.

The Principal at this school has a HUGE attitude problem. I have tried to speak to her on several occasions and she will walk away from me and not give me the courtesy to listen to what I have to say. She has missed appointments that I have scheduled with her and has not even bothered to call me.I love the teachers at the school but the environemnt created by the Principal seems to be very bad. I recently attended a PTO meeting and the attendance of parents seemed to be low it seems like no one gets too involved here which is very different from the school my kids attended before. If the Principals attitude is any indication of what people have to put up with it's no wonder no one gets involved.

I just recently moved to Las Vegas and have sent my child to Paul D. Henry Elementary School. The teachers here are very helpful and have made the transition for my child very positive. I do not see the Principal very much because every time I am at the school she is not there. I am hoping the year will go smoothly. I will let you all know.

The principal at this school is very harsh. She speaks very nice to parents and children in the presence of their parents but when they leave it is a different story. The morale of the staff is very low because of her demands. The teachers are wonderful and very good.

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.
