Taos Academy is the perfect school for motivated and eager to learn students. In my time at TA I have grown immensely as both a student and a human being. The teachers and the community foster a healthy environment to learn and grow. Highly recommended!

I like the independence and the freedom that is given at Taos Academy. When you reach junior year you get to take dual credit classes at UNM Taos, giving them college credit. However, one thing that is not great is that you are not in a typical classroom setting and therefore may have diffiuclty learning how to study.
In regards to dress code, while the rules are mainly standard, they are heavily enforced. The school office has baggy clothes in case of a violation and teachers are always on the lookout. Our school principal is highly involved with all parents in a hands-on like environment and the school holds frequent events to update parents on the latest events around the school. There is a zero-tolerance bullying policy and any disputes are solved in a firm, timely manner. All counselors, advisers, and office staff are eager and happy to help with whatever you may need. Drugs and alcohol is also not tolerated as police and adequate enforcement is on the scene immediately.
