Imagine a free public school with all of the benefits of a private school- small class sizes, highly qualified faculty, a diligent anti-bullying culture, world-class wilderness and service experiences, and instructional techniques proven to let every kind of mind thrive.
Roots and Wings Community School, one of the first charter schools in New Mexico, has long been at the forefront of the school reform movement. Within the Expeditionary Learning model, students learn with a purpose. It isn't about the artificial reward of a letter grade; it's about producing something relevant, with real consequences for the larger community.
Roots and Wings students put their math, social studies, science, reading and writing skills to the test by proposing a bag fee ordinance to reduce pollution from single-use plastic bags in TaosRoots and Wings is expanding to serve Kindergarten through eighth grade. We're excited to see the younger students out on the ranch, exercising their natural curiosity about the world. If you know of a child in Taos County who deserves a lifelong love of learning, encourage her or him to enroll: (575) 586-2076 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
