Posted May 20, 2004

The educational climate at LHS is highly centered on individual student success, and each teacher and staff member works har dto nurture that environment. Students can anticipate support in academics, as well as encouragement to succeed in extra curricular activities. Racially diverse, the LHS campus gives students of opposing ethnic histories a look into life and histories of different cultures. The Administration is comprised of former classroom eduactors who are sympathetic and understanding of the current climate in today's schools; and work to improve the educational experience for all involved.

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.
