This is one of the best schools. I have ever seen the teachers and staff are so wonderfu and my son has grown so much and has learned so much since the first day of school. it shocks me sometimes. My son and I both love it.

This is the greatest school I believe exists for my children. Not only are the principals and administrative staff very courteous and caring, the teachers take pride and ensure that each child is treated with the proper level of attention. I have 4 children that have learned at this school from kindergarten and they each received different but appropriate type/level of attention. The principal and front office staff is very professional and truly expounds a sense of community with the parents. I sincerely have a deep respect for this school and it's principal's leadership as they truly portray diversity and a humane respect for all the students no matter what race, national origin, nor color. My oldest son started school as being one of less than a handful of Native American students and with my 4th child there are much more Native students. Nevertheless, the principal and staff welcomed us to the school with open arms, respect, and sincerity to the extent that I have turned down 3 job offers in other cities that would have provided greater income and career opportunities but I just transfer my children out of this school.

My daughter attends Enchanted Hill Elementary in Rio Rancho...my husband and I fought over weather to put her in a private or public school. All my neighbors but their children in private school and we decided to put ours in public school. Well we always compare notes as to what our children are doing in school, and are very please that our daughter is getting the same education in the public school that she would be getting in the private school. So GOOD JOB ENCHANTED HILLS ELEMENTARY in Rio Rancho thanks!!!

Enchanted Hills is a 5 Star school in my opinion, as a Grandmother, and former Teacher. the classrooms are sectioned out for the different play and learning area's. The teachers are Kind and patient,and truly want to set the children up for success. The curriculum is age appropriate and fun for the children to want to learn.Enchanted Hills has my vote .

This school is amazing! All 3 of my children attend this school, with my oldest finishing 5th grade and having attended since Kindergarten. I have never been anything but completely impressed. Community at every level helps make this school so successful. The principal and vice principal strive for academic and behavioral excellence, as well as doing their best to know every student. The teachers are supportive and top notch. The PTA is very active and helps support the school in so many ways. The parents are very involved which in turn makes for more successful students. There is a great selection of extra-curricular activities as compared with other Rio Rancho schools. The Special Education program is quite impressive too. This school is everything you could ever ask for in a public school. Be warned though - everyone strives for excellence here and works hard to achieve it so be prepared to do your part to keep this school on top.

This is my child's second year at EHES. She loves it! The teachers are fantastic! The Principal knows the childrens' names and makes an effort to really get to know them as individuals. I chose this school for my child because of its high ratings, and I have not been disappointed. The Superintendent of Rio Rancho Public Schools is a caring individual who has done a fantastic job with the school district. I'm so impressed!

I have 4 children who have gone to elementary schools 4 different elementary schools between all of them. Enchanted Hills is by far the best one of all. My youngest started 5th grade there yesterday...her 4th year at Enchanted Hills. We couldn't be happier with the staff, the curriculum, the entire experience. Kathy Baehr and Maurice Ross (principal and assistant principal, respectively) are the best! I really felt like they have put in tremendous effort to get to know the families that attend the school and we felt very welcome whenever we as parents were on campus. The social worker, Barbara Durner is a saint...with her help over the last few years our childrens lives have been enhanced more than she'll ever know. And the teachers...they've been awesome! I highly recommend Enchanted Hills Elementary School to anyone moving into the Rio Rancho area. I believe it's the best!

My daughter started at EH last year, and she loves it. We love it. Teachers are great, perfect size classes, I like the leadership at the school too. Clean, organized, and seems like all of the students are engaged and happy. That is probably the most important aspect ...

Parents that have an issue with schools such as Enchanted Hills will usually not be happy anywhere. Some people have unrealistic expectations, and usually the kids suffer because of the parents - not the school. I can speak from experience that Enchanted Hills is one of the finest schools in New Mexico, if not the nation. They have received exemplary ratings time and again, and they enjoy top status. The staff is excellent, and the teachers are top notch. They don't give up on their students, and they strive for excellence. Cheers for Enchanted Hills!

We have been in Enchanted Hilla Elementry for three years. I believe in my heart now that my husband and I made the best choice in putting our children in this school,coming from a private school.This private school gave up on my children. Enchanted Hills principle and the teachers never once gave up on my daughter. No one is perfect . But Enchanted Hills Elementry is the best choice we ever made. THANK YOU Kathy Baehr and Mr Ross and all the teacher's and staff your the best. Two thumbs up for all of you. Keep up the great work.............

We recently moved from out of state and chose to move into the Enchanted Hills district because it was supposed to be the best elementary school in Rio Rancho. We have been very disappointed in the lack of effort the teachers put into the students. My children have not been challenged and the curriculum was the same as they had in their previous grades at their old school. I would only recommend private schools in New Mexico.

I am very impressed with the education at Enchanted Hills Elementary. The teachers really seem to care and the principal is always available to students and parents. It is definately the best school in Rio Rancho with high test scores. Children feel safe.
