I was very hesitant about sending my son here at first especially since we are not religious. The teachers were completely understanding and presented their views without pushing. My son loved going to preschool here and has learned a lot from the teachers at Apple Tree. I have watched him grow and learn along with the other kids and being a part of this school has really helped him develop socially as well as academically.
Manzano Christian School is a private high school in Truth or Consequences. 117 students attend Manzano Christian School and identify mostly as White, non-Hispanic; Black, non-Hispanic; and Native American or Native Alaskan. The student to teacher ratio at Manzano Christian School is 8:1. Hot Springs High School is one of the nearest high schools.
|Native American or Native Alaskan||4%||%|
|Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander||0%||%|
While the student/teacher ratio is excellent as a private school accessibility is limited to those with higher income. High staff turn-over creates a difficult learning environment from year to year. My understanding is the educators generally are not paid; rather their children receive free tuition. Parents are involved because it is a requirement of enrollment K through 12 as are a minimum involvement in fund-raising. The parents are generally nice people but this is true at many educational institutions. The religious base is a positive as it engenders a nurturing of student to student not only staff to student. Weekly gym class includes some unusual beneficial activities.
This school is allways striving to better serve its community. Although the music department and sports arena is low they consistently encourage the children to join group sports in the community. The parent involvement is amazing. These parents really do care and they are a pleasure to be around. Overall I find that this school has been a blessing for this community.
