My son had his teacher for both 3rd and 4th grade and my son was constantly challenged. When the coursework was too easy, his teacher found ways to challenge him. There were many tears at the end of the year when he knew he would need to move on to a different teacher. Every year we have had great teachers and great communication.

I have found guidance, friendship, discipline and love in everything that they share with the children. My child wanted to take her teacher with her to her new school. Now that's good TEACHING.

The principal and vice principal are dedicated to bringing out the best in both students and staff. This school is brand new and built with many "green" features allowing for low energy and water usage while letting in lots of natural light which makes a great learning enviornment. The classrooms all have new smart board computer technology. Parent involvement is not as encouraged here which somewhat cuts down on the parent "clicks" and drama but unfortunately also hinders great parent help. More parent volunteers could be used to encourage after school programs such as chess club. Overall my children are happy and well educated at Cielo Azul.

The whole staff of Cielo Azul is very student oriented. They provide a quality environment for the students and are very knowledgeable on the subjects they teach.

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.
