Roots and Wings Community School is a state-chartered expeditionary learning school that serves a diverse group of K-8 students from the greater Taos community in northern New Mexico.
Set in a farm and mountain environment, Roots and Wings uses the natural surroundings, active academic approach, and personalized atmosphere to make learning an adventure.
The results are students that are engaged, self-reflective, and active citizens, pursuing academic excellence, an attitude of service, and the compassionate behaviors that cultivate connection to the unique agricultural, cultural, and linguistic heritage of Northern New Mexico.
