Open Quote For the 2014-2015 school year, Placitas received an A rating with a total points of 96.64 of 105... Close Quote

Open Quote I have two children at this school and we have very high expectations of them academically. The faculty and staff of this school have met and exceeded our expectations. The school had a almost total replacement of the faculty and administrator two years back and it has done wonders for the school. Instead of taking kids out of this school and driving to Albuquerque to private schools (as was the trend >2 years ago), some families are now driving to Placitas to enroll their kids here.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
