Mission

Our vision is to guide learners as we develop  the tools and mindsets to continually seek and understand the world and ourselves. Learners will demonstrate confidence, compassion and value diversity. Everyone will leave our school with the ability to apply, transfer and reflect on concepts because we are motivated to ask questions and discover solutions.

Dear Animas Valley Community,

The vibrant fall colors in the valley never cease to amaze me!  November is upon us and your children have been engaged in learning how to increase their perseverance when challenged with a task.  This year Animas Valley is continuing to meet students where they are and giving them the tools to reach farther, solve problems, and attain their personalized best.  At Animas Valley we believe that challenge and productive struggle are good for kids, helping them to be lifelong problem-solvers and creative thinkers.
