Awards & Recognition

We can’t help smiling about the great things our schools are doing, so we created a page dedicated especially to the awards and recognitions our schools and faculty members receive. Below are a few of the honors we've earned:

*Cliff High School is nationally recognized with a bronze ranking by U.S. News & World Report in their Best High Schools review. The news organization calculates these values based on student performance on state exit exams and internationally available exams on college-level coursework. Way to go, Cliff!

*Our Special Education Department earned an exemplary rating by the New Mexico Public Education Department in 2012 for performance in meeting state indicators.

*Harrison Schmitt Elementary received a National Blue Ribbon award from the U.S. Department of Education in 2009. This distinguished award recognizes schools where students perform at very high levels or where schools show significant improvements in students’ academic achievement.
