The staff and faculty at KGE are amazing! The previous posts are very outdated and I'm not sure when there was a regime change but I have had nothing but good experiences at that school. The entire faculty engages each student and makes them feel welcome. I could not have asked for a better school for my kids this past year.

Great teachers. But horrible office staff, I agree they are very unprofessional. The so called representive of the special education discriminates against the needs of the child. It is very hard to get your special needs child what he needs in order to keep up. If it wasn't for the teachers the school would be one ugly mess. Thanks to all the teachers who care about the childrens needs in order to succeed academically! Teachers here do a wonderful job with our children!

Better schools with better Administration in the district. Good teachers! The office staff is rude and very unprofessional!!! The office staff and administration are a negative of this school. Otherwise it is great!

quality of academic programs is low. The reading requirements and understanding of basic skills is ignored if the child does not start in this school. The basic principles of math are also ignored. I wonder if the 4th graders understand geography of the United States.

I was impressed with the school and its faculty. My daughter enjoyed her 1st year there and is looking forward to this coming year as well. Great school, wonderful teachers loved the activities and the teachers participation.

Wonderful school. Great teachers and staff. I've observed other elementaries in the area...no comparison to KG! Would not have sent my child to another school!

Nice school, very good teachers and good facility. Only criticism is a district wide one, the school calendar.

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.
