Mission Statement


At Tijeras Creek Elementary School educators will begin with the state and district standards to determine the understandings essential to each grade level. Each student will be challenged to progress in these standards to achieve academic excellence. Educators will facilitate an active and supportive learning environment by collaboration, and by ongoing evaluation of student work and assessment results. Student learning will be stimulated by problem solving, critical and creative thinking skills, and by opportunities for student choice. Working as a team, staff, parents, and the community will assist all Tijeras Creek students to become contributing members of society empowered with the skills, knowledge, and values necessary to excel in a changing world.
