Breadth of education at the Santa Fe Girls' School

In addition to rigorous academics and innovative art programs, Santa Fe Girls’ School students have unique experiences that broaden and deepen their transformation into young adults:

Project Preserve

Project PRESERVE is the outdoor classroom of our environmental science program. Our PRESERVE program is the only three-year, standards-based, middle school curriculum focused on the Santa Fe River.

Roundhouse Advocacy

Each year, our eighth-grade students choose a bill to advocate for in the state legislature after studying US History and reading the Constitution. Students prepare written and oral arguments and then visit the Round House to deliver letters and speak before committees and the House Floor. Through this process, our students have often been instrumental to passing or preventing NM legislation.

Camping

Class camping trips allow students to build confidence, learn to do practical things for themselves, problem solve and deepen their social engagement and teamwork. Camping trips are linked to academic subjects like history, science and art.

Self-Defense

Since 2005, the Girls’ School has partnered with Resolve to provide trauma-informed, experiential, age-appropriate self-defense training to our students. Through this partnership, our students become empowered to prevent and stop violence in their lives.
