Letter To The Editor: A Hearty Thank You To All Of Our Supporters!

On December 18th the New Mexico Public Education Department released school grades for the 2014-2015 academic year.  With excitement and renewed inspiration, we are happy to announce that La Tierra Montessori School of the Arts and Sciences, a public charter school serving kindergarten through eighth grade, earned a B.  Our school worked from a low F in the start-up year of 2012 to a middle D in the second year.  The B is the result of efforts in the third year.

There are many stakeholders in this story.  The students, the staff, the Governing Council, the families, and our many varied champions; each have a piece in this success.  We are grateful for all of the generous support.

Last year we renovated and moved into a permanent facility in partnership with the Ohkay Owingeh tribal government.  Our new home is beautiful and creates a wonderful atmosphere in which to learn.

We are thrilled that in three years we were able to conquer the many hurdles it takes to start a new school and continue to thrive. 

In gratitude,

The La Tierra Governing Council
