This is a very great school! The teachers and students work very well together, and everyone is kind to each other. This is a very high-achieving school and has been recognized as an Honor-Roll School. I highly recommend this school to anyone out there and would love for you to try it out if you are interested. The teachers are very nice and Alamosa is a little bit of a try-it-out school. They let children explore with different enrichment activities in the school and let kids decide what they like. This is a very great school again and highly recommend this school for anyone who is interested. Thanks.

This is an amazing school! My daughter receives a high level of academic instruction and still has time to enjoy building in the Maker Space and going to art and music every week. How great is that! Principal and teachers put kids first at all time. We love our school!

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
