School Grades A-F

On Friday, August 17, 2018, the New Mexico Public Education Department released school grades for the 2017-2018 school year. Seven of our schools were within three to four points of receiving the next higher grade. The staff at Alamogordo Public Schools continues to analyze, review and develop processes and procedures that enhance student learning outcomes. 

The school grade is only one glimpse into the successes within Alamogordo Public Schools. What the school grades reflect is that Alamogordo Public Schools continues to perform above state averages:

  • Graduation rates are the highest they have been in the last four years:

    • Alamogordo High School – 79% up from 73%

    • Academy del Sol Alternative High School – 59% up from 44%

  • Alamogordo Public Schools outperformed the state average in Math and in English Language Arts (ELA)

  • Our middle schools out-performed the state average of 29% in 8th Grade ELA between 2% - 31%

  • Alamogordo High School out-performed the state average of 47% proficiency in 11th Grade ELA with 54% proficient.

  • The following elementary schools far exceeded the state average of 26% proficient in 4th Grade Math:

    • 35% proficient at North and Yucca

    • 39% proficient at Sierra

  • Holloman Elementary 4th Grade Math exceeded the state average of 26% in
    4th Grade Math and the cross-state average of 38% with 74% proficient.

Alamogordo Public Schools will continue to improve with the addition of the $7 million Mill Levy passed in April 2018. This will eventually allow all APS students to have an electronic device in their hands to develop the skills and attributes they each need to meet their own goals. We would like to, again, extend a heartfelt thank you to the community members for their support in the passing of this important referendum.

Alamogordo Public Schools will continue to partner with parents and the community to ensure that all students graduate from high school prepared for success in college and in 21st century careers.
