This is a very good school. I'm having a great High School experience and I've only been here for only a month! :)

Poor administrative leadership (at the building and district level) has resulted in a continuing lack of academic growth at Newcomb. The all too frequent change in the building administration and the imposition of a 'one policy fits all' approach by the district office results in a school that coasts along on day to day routine momentum, not inspired academic motivation. The goals of CCI (continuous classroom improvment) are theoretical and do not meet the real problems of low student attendance and apathy.

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.
