Best. School. Ever. I wish it went all the way through high school. You can't go wrong enrolling your children here.

My son is in first grade and has been diagnosed with a reading disability called Phonological Awareness Disorder. He is severely dyslexic with an above average IQ. At San Antonito, he receives three hours DAILY of special instruction from the special education teacher. That amount of assistance is unheard of at most other public schools. In one semester his reading has improved and so has his confidence in his ability. He still has a long way to go but this program seems to be working for him and I love it. We couldn't be happier with San Antonito. I highly recommend it to anyone with a child struggling with reading disabilities.

Very pleased with this school. My child recently transferred from another school due to a very chaotic, stressful environment. This is a night/day difference. The teacher knows exactly what is expected of her and her students. Therefore her students know exactly what is expected of them as well. It's a very nice environment. The library is wonderful. The MAC lab is amazing. (No PCs!!!!) Love it, love it, love it.

As a retired educator, I love this school. Strong principal, great teachers, and an involved community.

My son has gone to this school for the past two years. We were from out of state, and could not have been more pleased with this school. It continues to amaze me how much people love their job at this school. They subscribe to a no bully policy and the kids seem to love each other. This little school should often be compared to eutopia.

Could not recommend this little gem of school any higher! It's in a small community, with lots of parental support and participation, the staff is the best....we have not second-guessed our decision to live in the East Mountain community, not once, simply to get our kids into this fabulous public school!

Great school, small, teachers are wonderful, I have had two kids go there. Great parental involvement... It would be wonderful to have more PE, but times are tight and they can't afford more. We are blessed this year to have a half time counselor. As this school makes Annual Yearly Progress every year, we don't qualify for much extra like some schools...so we are lucky to have a counselor, a PE teacher and art/music every other year. Thankfully, parents in this community help out a lot and are willing to go the extra mile for their kids.

Great teachers and great parent involvement = great kids and a great learning environment. I have had 2 kids go through here and one still attending and I have had only one complaint: not enough PE. Why, when I was a kid, we had PE 5 days/week, sometimes 6! And it was uphill, both ways.

Marvelous school. Reminds me of my school experience. The walls are hung with book report or country reports. A scientist comes in once a week for the entire afternoon of fun & experiments on air pressure, heat etc. There are plenty of after school activities such as chess or choir. The rest of the district should emulate this school.

My grandson was in Kindergarten the last school year. His teacher Mrs Carlson and her aide Mrs Narry were exceptional. They treated each student with such care, consideration and love. It was a sight to behold. We are expecting the same as our precious gift from God enters the First grade.

My daughter is twice exceptional. We moved here from Hawaii to get decent education for our kids (son is also 2x). We have not been disappointed, this has been a great school, and the kids are extremely wonderful. Gentler and kinder than in many schools. The teachers in this school care.

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.
