The Albuquerque School System
Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the most populous city in the state, with a population of about 559,000. The Albuquerque greater metropolitan area has a population of nearly 910,000. The Albuquerque Public School (APS) district is one of the largest in the nation, providing educational services to nearly 100,000 students. In addition to the public and charter schools in the area, there are also many private and religious schools.
It can be challenging for parents to navigate such an extensive school system, especially if their child has unique learning needs or is struggling with their studies. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with highly qualified Albuquerque tutors who can help children reach their academic potential.
Albuquerque students need to prepare for the ACT or SAT during their high school years, but they have several other standardized exams to prepare for throughout their academic careers. The New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) is a statewide program with assessments given in reading, writing, social studies, math and science beginning in third grade. Exams are given each year through eighth grade. In high school, students take the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) and the New Mexico High School Competency Exam (NMHSCE). Students must pass the NMHSCE to graduate from high school.
Even students who attend the best schools may find themselves unsure of core academic concepts. A personal tutor can help your child fill any knowledge gaps and gain greater academic confidence.
As one of the largest school districts in the country, it is not surprising that many of the schools would be among the most highly ranked in the entire state. In fact, the top two schools in the state are in Albuquerque. To see how the best schools in the city compare to New Mexico’s overall averages, please review the table below.

A professional tutor can help your child prepare for one of the many standardized exams required by the state of New Mexico, but parents may not realize that private tutoring can also be beneficial for other learning needs. If your child is struggling with a concept or seems bored with their regular instruction, they may find it easier to work with a tutor in a one-on-one setting.
With such a large student body, parents may be surprised that the student-to-teacher ratio in Albuquerque schools remain reasonable. Many classes have fewer than twenty students even in the largest schools. Regardless, teachers can give only so much attention to one student.
