Del Norte has had a change in leadership, but it is still an awesome school with great leadership. New activities and programs, including yearbook, Student Council, and the Ambassadors Club have been added to promote student involvement and leadership. An additional reading program has been implemented to assist children with fluency and comprehension. The teachers are fabulous, and truly care about the children. Del Norte is an awesome school, and I am looking forward to seeing more great things taking place in the future!

My kids have gone to this school for several years and we love this school! We like that the new principal has added new programs to this school for the benefit of the kids. My kids love her!

I would rate this school's Teachers as the most wonderful teachers with the kids. On the other hand the new Principle at the school has no people skills and is very rude to the parents as well as the kids that go there. If I were on the board she would not be there with my children.

Top notch staff! They are excellent educators and the city of Roswell should be proud to have such excellent school.

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.
