  • This school is ok but not as good as Vanden. Poor quality STUDENTS! But it's better than Rod and Fairfield.

  • Both my sons graduated from Armijo High School. They were enrolled in IB classes and we found the teachers were very good, very attentive overall and the boys were challenged most of the time. They are now attending an IVY league college thanks to the wonderful IB program at Armijo.

  • I'm a class of 89 guy from Armijo High. Still remember it well after all these years. I guess, like my fellow classmates at the time, didn't think much about the school (other than a necessary chore to complete), couldn't wait to graduate from, and then move on to whatever.

    Now that my class has grown older and wiser, I think the majority will agree that we've probably taken Armijo High and all that it had to offer for granted. I remember it had excellent facilities. It had a high quality staff. The quality of education was excellent.

    I hear about some (actually a lot) of the problems that high schools have today; from introduction of weapons, to the drugs, to the majority of students having problems passing basic math and English skills, etc. No doubt we too had those problems back then, but it seems nowhere near the levels that it exists today.

    Regarding the quality of education that the teachers of 89 provided, they definitely did their jobs. As I remember it, the standards were high and the level of education they taught us was high.

    Back then, we had about two thousand students. It was crowded walking to and from classes, especially walking from the main school to the portables (do they still have them?). But the area where Armijo is at was large enough to not feel swished and I never remembered the class sizes too overcrowded.

    I don't know how much Armijo has changed in almost twenty years since I was last there, but this is how I remember it. Bottom line: a great school that I'm proud to have been a part of.
