Note from Camino de Paz about COVID-19 and our response:
Over the past two weeks, we have come to realize how much local food co-ops and farmers' markets depend on our produce, yogurts, and cheeses. Therefore, our farm staff and our students, on a voluntary basis, are working to keep our farm going in order to provide local food to New Mexicans during this global pandemic. While this may change as conditions change, we are doing our part to positively contribute to the COVID-19 response in New Mexico.
Welcome to Camino de Paz!
Camino de Paz Montessori Secondary School and Farm is a land-based, academic community currently serving grades 7-12.
Our mission is to support adolescents as emerging adults with pathways to meaningful work and real-world engagement as they develop skills, perspectives, and competencies that prepare them to address contemporary local and global challenges. We challenge each learner academically, socially and spiritually through inquiry-based scholarship, creative expression, and manual work that incorporate values of cultural diversity and preservation, local economies, service and social justice.
Based on Maria Montessori’s Erdkinder
philosophy, we are dedicated to meeting the specific developmental needs of the young adolescent.
During these critical years of rapid physical, emotional and social changes, these young adults need an environment in which they can engage their intellect, spirit, hands and bodies.
Camino de Paz Secondary School’s curriculum is fully integrated with the activities of Camino de Paz's school and farm. Both provide an environment in which students are able to:
improve academic achievement through hands-on, experiential learning;
discover their passions, strengths and challenges;
engage the greater community;
interact positively with peers and adults;
think creatively and analytically;
become ethical, caring citizens.
