Wow, I thought I was the only one...both my wife and daughter (who was a senior at the school) were treated beyond rude by both teachers and admin...thankful to be gone from it forever, younger son will not step foot in there...homeschool before that.

Have to agree-administration is incompetent, generally unhelpful and downright rude at times. Do not recommend. (this was for 2010-11 school year)

I have had great difficulty with the administration. Only a few quality teachers. Switched my child to Aldo Leopold school.

I've noticed this as well...coming from out of state-standards are pretty low, many personnel are rude

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.
