My husband was just offered a job in Alburqurque (sp?). I have 2 elementary school children who right now are in the incredibly crappy Florida school system and I really don't want to transfer them over to the same.

I have no problem making my husband drive to and from work a nice spell (30-45 minutes). What outlying areas should I be looking at that may be able to give me moderate safety, mountains and good schools?

Thanks

Albuquerque Public Schools are neither great nor terrible... just a decent large school system. Parental involvement can make a big difference in the focus of students and teachers. Rio Rancho has a separate school system from APS. There are quite a few private, parochial, and alternative schools. Kids and adults in the area are pretty good about mutual respect and cultural diversity, which is a hallmark of the state.

We just moved to Albuquerque and schools were the most important deciding factor in where we chose to live. We came from an excellent school district. In my research, I found that the highest test scores and AP test exam rate were in the Northeast Heights of Albuquerque. We chose to live in a neighborhood that feeds to North Star elementary, Desert Ridge Middle and La Cueva High School. Here is a link to Great Schools web site with the ratings of schools in descending order:
