New Mexico School for the Arts
About the School
The New Mexico School for the Arts is the first legislatively created art school in the state’s history. The School for the Arts will be a residential, state-chartered high school located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Three hundred New Mexico students will ultimately attend the School for the Arts each year. These students will be chosen because they show artistic abilities, potential and passion. The school is scheduled to start in fall 2009.
The School for the Arts is modeled after other public arts schools in Alabama, Florida, Minnesota, North Carolina and South Carolina, California, Mississippi and Massachusetts. By following the example of these schools, students who have demonstrated artistic abilities, promise, aptitude and passion can learn to excel in the arts while getting a high school diploma. No student will be denied admission because he or she did not have access to lessons prior to high school.
