ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - New Mexico doesn't make the grade when it comes to students being prepared for real life.
Now there is a new partnership that will help change that.
Albuquerque Public Schools and Central New Mexico Community College are teaming up to open a new dual-credit high school that will operate on the campus of the community college starting this upcoming school year.
The school will be able to accommodate up to 400 students.
"These early college high schools are a unique partnership between a school district, a college, and just as important the business community. All three communities joined together with a single goal to make sure our students graduate," Governor Susana Martinez said.
The goal is for the students to graduate with high school diplomas and associate's degrees.
