School of Dreams Academy is one of the few, if not the ONLY, multifaceted charter schools in New Mexico. With a S.T.E.A.M. educational model that just keeps getting better and better, SODA offers outstanding programs in the Arts, Robotics, Agriculture, Literature, and Science. Upcoming construction include plans for a high tech computer learning center, as well as a manufacturing and vocational training center. The school serves students Pre-k through 12th grade and is the only Early College High School in Valencia County where students have the opportunity to graduate high school with an associate's degree. Stop by any time and you will be taken on a "student led" tour and have an opportunity to speak with staff and administration.

School of Dreams academy is not a bad school. The class sizes are small and most of the kids that go there graduate and get into a good college. However, the administration is very unorganized and don't seem to know what they are doing. They place too much on the teachers and don't pay the teachers nearly enough, for tgat reason they can't seem to keep teachers. However, the school is great if you would like to take free college classes while still in high school. The school offers dual credit classes and many students graduate with an associate's degree.
School of dreams academy is a very loving environment to be in. The teachers care and are very passionate towards their jobs. Because the student body is so small everyone is friends and cares for one another. It's like having a second family. The one downside are the group of students who strongly dislike the school and make the students around them feel unsafe and give the school a bad rep.
