university high is different than other schools i have gone to, but i am satisfied with the teachers and staff, they care about you, you are a person with a name and feelings and not just a number like at other schools. i feel if you are having trouble at other schools, you should look into going to university high.

UHs is awesome! The teachers really care about students. It offered me a better chance even though I had made unwise decisions.

I feel that UH is a wonderful school and the teachers per child is more of a one on one situation where the teachers actually want to help their students. Both of my children have gone to UH, one graduated with honors, where at the public school he was so bored he wanted to drop out. My other son who now attends UH is doing wonderful. And I'm very proud of what the staff at UH has done for me and my children. So HIP HIP Harray for University High for doing a wonderful job. If the child puts out a little efford they will do wonderful there with great and understanding staff

I have a child who went to university high school last year and i do not think any one should send there child to that school.It has never been one on one teacher to student. there are no sports at the school,and no extracurricular activities to keep the students excited about going to school every day.Honestly my child learned more at home then at did at university high school.I would not recomend sending any ones child to university high school.

This school gives attention to the problems of the students, the teachers are devoted to helping these hard to place kids with individual attention to the students. The faculty cares for thier children. Very good for an alturnitive school. Not at all what I thought it would be.

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.
