I think that This year Military Height s has improved with the new leadership of our new principal Mrs. Shanor. I wish more parents could come to the pta meetings and get a little more involved. My daughter has been at this school for 5 years and is now in the 5th grade she has had the best teacher we could ever ask for. Mrs. Shaffer is to be commended for all of the hard work she puts into her work for the kids in her P.E.G.S. class

I too received the letter with the option to transfer schools. However, I love this school! My son has done very well at Military Heights due to the principal and the exceptional teachers. It is not that important to me that the the school as a whole has not passed the state testing, that could be due to ANY number or reasons and I don't see that it has to do with the ability of the teachers that my son has had. It could have more to do the the students who are not good students, parents who are not involved with their kids education process, etc. For me, that state score is NO reflection about how well my son has and is doing at Military Heights. I am so appreciative of the help that has been offered to my son and well he is flourishing here.

We had a TERRIBLE Kindergarten experience, but the teacher my son had is no longer an employee of the school. Since then, we have been blessed with wonderful teachers. However, we were recently informed that the school has FAILED, for the past 2 years, to meet the State's requirements and has given us the option to transfer to a school who HAS met them. I am torn as to what to do as this is my son's last year at the school. However...NO information has been given about WHY the school's test scores were below expectations or what is going to be done to better the situation. Instead of being given the option to transfer, I would much rather them rectify with a solution to the problem...effective immediately!

My son is new to this school but we have been very impressed with the principal's involvement and his teacher. She has been incredibly helpful and eager to help my son maintain his regular ed placement. My son is now enjoying school and on track for first grade.

My daughter is a second grader at Military Heights. She has had some difficuliies but the teachers and staff have really worked with her. She is doing much better now. The parents are encouraged and welcome to come to school and help out with their child or just observe. The CEI lab is really helpful resource for the students. I would like to see more music in the school, especially with the younger grades. Overall, this is an 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.
