           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:

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.
