    My grandbaby goes to this school. I will be in Taos in October and very much would like to meet his teachers He loves coming so that says alot You see he is just 3 years old. Children are a gift from God and need to have their needs met but also encouraged to learn to do things for themselves......ask for help and help others....thank you for your commitment to children

    This is the best school we have ever had the pleasure of being a part of! My son and daughter have been at this school for 3 years. Anansi is able to maintain academic excellence while supporting each child's uniqueness and building their confidence. The art program is incredible and they have the most wonderful Spanish and music teacher. Their goal is Spanish fluency by 5th grade. My son has had a lot of social problems (there are only 5 boys in his class) and the principal and teachers are right on top of it. They have responded to every single concern with patience and compassion and more importantly their measures put in place to deal with these issues have been effective. The principal is an incredible leader and teaches with a Love and Logic philosophy. There is obviously a structured discipline in place because all of the teachers handle issues that come up in the same effective manner. They even teach emotional intelligence as part of the curriculum. I wish I could give them 10 stars!
