    "It is not about scoring an 'A; on a test, or as a school, it is about work ethic, kindness, respect, your ability to help others, and a never-say-quit attitude, when you have these traits in place all other things fall into place," summarizes Rick Espinoza, superintendent of Carrizozo Schools. Espinoza was speaking to the Carrizozo High School students and staff who had gathered to meet secretary designate of the New Mexico Public Education Department Christopher Ruszkowski. Ruszkowski visited Carrizozo as part of the New Mexico True Straight A tour congratulating the top 10 percent of schools in the Land of Enchantment. Mr. Espinoza stated that "He is truly proud of his students, staff and faculty as well as the community for the work all put into making Carrizozo Schools among the best schools in the State of New Mexico."
