Mountain Mahogany School is a new school this year for my Grandson. He is doing well and I enjoy getting updates and photos of him on his learning activities weekly. The teachers make a point to know all the kids names and recognize the parents during pickup. He is enjoying his learning environment at MMCS.
MMCS is a fantastic school in so many ways! My child has just started middle school and we are both impressed with the program. The teachers are inspiring and care about every students success. The communication with parents and the little personal touches make the mid school experience so special. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to get weekly photos and updates. Thank you Mountain Mahogany!
Mountain Mahoghany Community Schoool is a new school for my daughter. The school's adminstraters and teachers are great. I haven't seen this much enthusiasm and involvement at any school that my children have attended in the past. My daughter loves the school, teachers and is excited about going to school every day. The school very recently experienced vandalism and a fire which destroyed much of what the school has worked so hard to accomplish. A compassionate campus and a safe school environment. If they could win this sweepstakes, it would greatly benefit the school at this time.
Over all Mountain Mahogany is GREAT! I have 2 daughters attending MMCS. My oldest was in a private school for 4 years, so it was a bit of a challenge at first with the lack of structure (and zero homework) in the classroom but now that she's in middle school it's been quite different. She has had some homework but not as much as I thought or think she should have, but it's still very early in the year and there is definitely more structure within the classrooms. My youngest is having a blast with finger knitting and gardening. Her teacher is organized, excited to teach, seems to have the class "together" (structured) and keeps the parents informed and involved. I'm looking forward to a great year! It would be such a blessing if MMCS won the sweepstakes, especially with the school just being vandalized. :(
What a wonderful place for my child! Caring, personal, nurturing approach, awardwinning teachers, cozy setting made my child love to go to school.
If you're looking to drop your kid off at school and that's their education, then this school is unlikely to be a good fit for your family. If you are looking for a learning community to be part of as a parent, this school might be what you're looking for. There is mandatory parent involvement, a lot of community input into the functions of the school, and values/mission-based curriculum and culture. Go to their website and read their charter and other documents carefully, they are a good place to gain an understanding of the school's mission.
I've been going here since kindergarten! I love it the teacers help me with things I'm having trouble with and I always love making sure I have good grades!! I'm also am able to go on trips and com back and do my school work on the trip. They give that opportunity to see the world!! The school is like a family, a community we all work together to make sure we have a safe and healthy learning and growing experience. I feel welcomed for who I am. I love there and I'm sad this my last year there them I go into high school. Sincerely to MMCS, Kabira
My son has attended MMCS for 7 years. Wonderful, supportive staff, excellent teachers, beautiful gardens, we love it!
This is a really creepy school in a bad neighborhood, anyone can just get on campus if needed and there is no security. The office staff is rude and unorganized and this school needs to be closed down!
Our first year here and we LOVE it! My kids look forward to school every day.
supportive administration, everyone is loving and honest, environmental education, outside a lot, small and warm
Focuses on kids' strengths - very accepting of where kids are in their development without trying to make them into something they aren't.
Mountain Mahogany is a dream come true for us. The curriculum provides training and practice in effective conflict resolution amongst peers, vocabulary on feelings and needs. I love that my kids are learning a vocabulary to express themselves and an ability to connect with others. When I drop them off at school, they go running! What a joy as a parent to see my children love their school.
I love the personal attention, understanding, and appreciation for the earth and our world that is taught at Mountain Mahogony Community School in Albuquerque, NM. They care for each child and encourage enthusiasm and eagerness to learn. My granddaughter's teacher spends his personal time teaching her how to play guitar and sing, which has done wonders for her self esteem. I would highly recommend this school!
MMCS is such a wonderful environment for children. It embodies everything that education should be! It is an organic curriculum with the most amazing teachers! MMCS even has a 2010 Golden Apple Award Winner - Ms. Jen Chavez-Miller! All the teachers are wonderful!
creative, whole-child learning, community, school gardens, outdoors!!! intentionality
Environmental Ed, Arts Integrated, nurturing, expanding, progressive. there is nothing like it anywhere else/
While other schools have no educational time -- and little recreational time -- outdoors, Mountain Mahogany teaches students more than an hour a day outdoors, where their senses are sharpest and memory most open. At a time when other schools are cutting art programs to nothing, MMCS uses art in every part of the curriculum. My son feels successful and learns successfully because MMCS teaches the human part of him.
