Under Governor Susana Martinez and Education Secretary Hanna Skandera, student performance improved. The four-year high school graduation rate went up from 67 percent in 2010 to 71 percent in 2016. More students are taking and passing Advanced Placement exams, too. The number of AP test-takers grew from 7,636 in 2010 to 10,756 in 2016, and the number of students passing the tests increased from 5,266 in 2010 to 6,440 in 2016. Click here to learn more about New Mexico’s education reform story, or read about the history of the AP exams in “Surviving a Midlife Crisis” from our Winter 2006 issue.
