Roots and Wings Community school
is an Expeditionary Learning School that serves the diverse students of the
Upper Rio Grande Valley. Set in a farm
and mountain environment, Roots and Wings uses the natural surroundings, active
pedagogy and personalized atmosphere to make learning an adventure. The results are students that are engaged, self-reflective,
and active citizens. The school promotes
academic excellence, the fostering of character and service, and students
connected to the unique agricultural, cultural and linguistic heritage of
Northern New Mexico.
Our mission at Roots & Wings Community
School (RWCS) is to nurture and prepare young people in a highly personalized,
"hands-on" learning environment so that each student may become a
self-confident, competent, respectful and contributing member of our
society. At RWCS, we accomplish this
mission by enrolling a small group of students at a time and creating a
compelling, project-based educational environment in a farm and wilderness
setting. Major intent is put toward
intellectual development, practical skill-building, affective learning,
character formation, community membership and moral growth.
