Pecos Schools, High,Middle,Elementary are made up of great students, teachers, administrators, cooks, janitors and the like. The students are exposed to life style of family and community. They are influenced by prayer, poverty and a vast amount of love. Teachers try very hard to include all the images and symbols that make our students strong and caring. In the classrooms students are exposed to the latest in technology that is right at their disposal. Qualified teachers assist them at all levels. The music program too touches on forming character and exposing students to history of today and yesterday through music. The English department has the teacher of the year in charge of learning the latest on creative writing etc. The sports department does not win unless the grades are present and made a part of the sports world. Our students go to the lunch hour knowing they will be fed healthy food and being wasteful is not in the job description. As the school year unfolds our schools are ready for new insights to learning. Here they will learn concepts of love of life and death, of love and nature and form the landscape of their souls.

Incredible turnaround. The school made AYP! There is a lot of pride in this school. This is shown by students and staff. Really good school.

The school has really turned around this year. There is a focus on academics, discipline and being responsible. The change in leadership has made a huge difference.

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.
