School grade

The NMPED (New Mexico Public Education department) replaced the "No child left behind act" and AYP testing with a new school grading formula, which took effect for the 2010-11 school years. The grade is calculated using many forms of testing, and includes graduation rates.


AHAHS competes in the New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA), as a class 6A school in District 5. In 2014, the NMAA realigned the state's schools in to six classifications and adjusted district boundaries. In addition to Atrisco Heritage Academy High School, the schools in District 5-6A include: West Mesa High School, Rio Grande High School, Valley High School and Albuquerque High School.
