My child attends Berrendo Eelementary.The staff is very friendly and welcoming to the parents and students alike. The staff goes above and beyond their duties to make sure that every student is included and important. The staff teaches in a fun and educational manner. There are many extracuricular activites for the students and parents alike. Berrendo is an awesome school!

We have two children at Berrendo Elementary and have been extremely impressed. There is a lot of parental involvement in the classrooms and through the PTA. The Principal is excellent, and our children's teachers are organized, loving, and do a good job of maintaining a positive learning environment in the classroom. We have been involved in great schools in many different parts of the country and I would highly reccomend this school to anyone new to Roswell. Berrendo also has a fantastic 'gifted' program that is very science oriented and 'hands on'.

I am a long time mom of Berrendo Elementary School. I have three children that have gone, or are currently attending. I can't even begin to tell you what a wonderful group of people work at our school. The principle always makes the parents feel welcome and encourages participation from all. I have had children in this school for the past 9 years and we have been blessed with wonderful teachers along the way. The teachers go the extra mile for their students. We have the teachers that teach for the love of teaching, and all the children know this and rise to do their best because the teachers certainly are doing their part.

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.
