Quality of Education

Quality of Education Survey

The QES, mandated by the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) since 1998, is designed to gather information about parent’s perceptions of the quality of education in their child’s school. It is used to identify areas of strength and areas where we need to improve so that we may plan for the coming year.
