Posted December 2, 2004

I believe that this is a great school. Its located in a small town so the kids can really get envoled in the community and the teachers have more time to work with the children individually. The best thing is that the teachers actually want the kids to pass and will help them to make sure they do. I would recomend this school to anyone I know I enjoyed it and made lots of friends and had a great education.

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.
