ATC Receives an "A" from NMPED

ATC PARCC Press Release 2015

Last year, New Mexico implemented new standardized tests known as PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) to assess student achievement. Adopted by New Mexico just 4 years ago, Common Core curriculum in English and math emphasizes critical thinking and problem-solving skill development.

The PARCC test scores for New Mexico are in, and one south side charter school is very pleased with the results.  The Academy for Technology and the Classics (ATC) outperformed New Mexico schools, scoring well above the state average.

ATC PARCC Scores are some of the highest in the State

ATC is pleased to announce that the PARCC results for middle and high school students have been released.  ATC had some of the highest scores in the State of New Mexico.  I would like to congratulate our students and teachers for working day in and day out resulting in scores that indicate a very high level of academic achievement.  ATC does not “teach to the test.”  We have skillful, passionate teachers who set the bar at a high level, and our students meet their expectations.
