This will be my childs 2nd year at DFI.Last year she had a great experience and a great teacher,however,I have yet to see any real interest in student or parent concerns or involvment from the principal or vice principal.

My child has attended this school for 1 year. The experiance has been mixed. I am a very involved parent, and this school does not welcome involvement from parents, except the fund raising, they would like everyone involved in that. The principal and vice principal and the secretarys have a lot of room for improvement. The principal is not flexible at all. I am greatful that my child will not be attending this school next year.

My daughter went to this school last year and she hated it. The students would tease her and make rascist remarks about her. This school should teach about bullying.

This is my daughter 1st year at DFI...so far so good. Was a little skeptical with a new principal...but things have been great. No regrets sending my daughter to DFI.

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.
