Ramah High School has an outstanding caring staff. THey also have a pricipal who works extremely hard to integrate all of the cultures and diversities of the area without loss of education. Ramah appears to be hampered by being part of the Gallup Mckinley County School DIstrict. I love the school and people there.

I truly believe that the quality of education is outstanding as far as the required core (english,social science,etc). We experienced satisfaction with the education our children received. Ramah lacks the facilities that most of the local schools have as far as sports. Level of parental involvement was adequate, and when compared to the other schools I know of, it was better.

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.
