Just a little FYI~America is a country who is supposed to welcome people from all other nations. If a student comes here from another country or is being raised by parents who come from another country, I find it absolutely amazing that we can offer them an education in their native language as they are learning ours. Other countries do this for Americans believe it or not. It takes awhile to learn another language well enough to learn academic subjects in that language. So I applaud this school for doing what they are doing and helping ALL students to gain an education. It benefits our country immensely. ~Proud American

I've heard some teachers at Salazar are now teaching certain subjects in Spanish!? I find it quite offending considering this is America. Spanish as ALL other languages should be an option. I'm definitely not sending my children to a school where they have seemed to have forgotten where we live... America!

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.
