Our Vision

The Jemez Mountain Public Schools will graduate students prepared with the knowledge and skills essential to function in a democratic society.


Our Mission

The Jemez Mountain Public Schools will work with families and the community to provide sound academic programs, proficient staff, adequate support services, responsible fiscal management and safe facilities conducive to learning.  We will support a vision of excellence that students may reach their fullest potential as educated citizens.

Our Story

Welcome to Jemez Mountain Public School District. We are here to serve all students in our community. We offer a wide variety or quality programs to meet the needs of each student. We have a highly qualified faculty to serve the academic needs of our students and a support staff who is here to help provide a safe and caring environment for each individual who is part of our school community.

Our curriculum is data driven and focuses on student achievement. We have high expectations for each student. We expect students to attend school regularly, put forth their best effort in each classroom, and respect the rights of each individual in our school community.

Additionally, we believe the “JEMEZ MOUNTAIN WAY” of Being Dependable, Being Prepared, Being Respectful, Being an Example, and Having Pride in our school community, will help provide the framework for individual and school success.

The goal of Jemez Mountain School District is, in partnership with students, parents, and the community, to educate and encourage all students to reach their full potential and become successful contributors to society.
