Carlos Gilbert Elementary is a stand out! Our school leadership is exemplary with a wonderful Principal and an exceptional teaching staff. Long term, committed teachers have taught generations of Santa Fe children. Our Principal, Mrs. Sallee, is committed to education (#1) and we continue to make AYP. Our beautiful new building has created a new environment we are all proud of. We have an Outdoor Classroom, Playground, incredible Library, Computer Lab, state of the art classrooms, a Gym & Stage, as well as sports and academic clubs. Our PTK (parent group) is among the most involved and committed group of parents working to support our teachers & staff; raising funds for opportunities for our children and creating a very special school community. Carlos Gilbert is definitely one of the best schools in Santa Fe. Our school has grown and we have almost 375 students - BRAVO BLACKHAWKS!

We love Carlos Gilbert - a great group of families and some of the best teachers in Santa Fe. The old building was pretty run-down, but is set to get a big renovation. The temporary set-up isn't great, but the school is still worth it.

Best elementary school in the state!!

The best public elementary school in Santa Fe bar none. Academic strength of each grade is teacher-dependent. Carlos Gilbert has one of the smallest enrollments, low FTE-student ratio, numerous extracurricular activities, and a very active PTA. My son loved his second grade teacher and is heartbroken that we are moving out of Santa Fe and he won't be going to Carlos Gilbert anymore. Also, it is the only public school that is downtown and many classes take field trips to the museums and Lensic for performances. Don't be put off by the age of the building - it is being renovated next year.

We moved our children from a private school to the public school system. We were very worried about this but I couldn't be more pleased with Carlos Gilbert! I'm so impressed with the care and concern that goes into the education of our children. It turns out they were behind in the private school system and Carlos Gilbert has gone above and beyond to see that our children get caught up and excel in their education.

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.
