During San Juan College High School’s first year, the Class of 2020 recorded some of the highest scores in the state for the 2017 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test.

SJCHS students scored number one for K-12 in English Language Arts Standards (ELA), and number two high school for proficiency in math. This test was administered to all 10th graders, however, SJCHS students took the test as 9th graders. 

PARCC is New Mexico’s annual Math and English Language Arts assessment for all students in grades 3-11.

“I’m extremely proud of our teachers and students for this accomplishment,” said Don Lorett, SJCHS principal. “I would specifically like to recognize the efforts of English instructor Robbin Lewis, and Math instructor Dena Burgert. The scores reflect their classroom achievements.”

SJCHS is a free, public high school on the campus of San Juan College. The school opened in the fall of 2016 with a cohort of 80 students. Operating under the direction of Farmington Municipal Schools, SJCHS serves students who reside in and is a collaboration among the Aztec, Bloomfield, Central Consolidated and Farmington School Districts. Starting with the Class of 2021, SJCHS is adding 100 freshmen students every year to the student body. Students will graduate with a New Mexico High School Diploma of Excellence, as well as an Associate Degree or Certificate from San Juan College.
