This school offers my advanced child a gifted program that focuses on content rather than just a fun enrichment setup he had at a previous school. The advanced math instruction he receives is beneficial. This framework is really setting him up for success in secondary school.
I requested a transfer to Bandelier because of the wonderful reputation it has. We are very happy that we did! All three of my children are currently there and have been there since Kindergarten. For the most part we have had wonderful experiences with their teachers and most of them really engaged. The parent involvement is top notch and you get a great sense of community there! We will be so sad to go when my youngest move on to middle school in a couple of years.
I have one graduate from Bandelier and two that are still attending. The whole family has had an amazing experience at Bandelier. I have been a Banda Parent for the past 8 years.
The community of parents, teachers, staff, neighbors, local businesses and graduates of Bandelier is amazing! There is never ending support, thoughtful smart students, amazing certified teachers, kind staff. There is a real sense of being at "home" and "belonging" at Bandelier. I have been more than impressed with this school. I am thrilled that my husband and I made a choice to transfer in to this amazing school.
