Thanks to the work of many dedicated and hard working individuals, we now have the funds to buy our modular unit. This unit will have 4 classrooms and will house the math, science and social studies classes.
We would like to thank the Wolslager Foundation for helping make this possible.

The construction and installation of these new units should begin soon after the New Year.


Moving In:

On June 13 and 14, With help and support from parents, staff, students and the U.S. Army Bridges Academy made the move from our location on Arizona Street to our new building located on N. Stanton Street.

The students and staff alike are very excited to be in the new building and look forward to a bright future here.

We would like to extend a Special Note of Thanks to Mr. Keller (student parent) and soldiers from Ft. Bliss 127th Aviation Support Battalion, who coordinated our school move from our current location to our new school address. His planning with the troops from Ft. Bliss, TX in a span of 2 days moved 90% of our school and even helped with our school construction needs.

We would also like to thank Mesilla Valley Transportation for their help in making this move.
