Our children have been at Little Earth from pre-school all the way through the elementary classrooms, our son is now going into 6th grade. It has been an amazing experience. They have always been honored for the individuals they are, felt supported and never judged. The school has helped to build excellent academic strengths and strong social/emotional skills that have made the kids so confident in everything they do. We love it and will miss the Little Earth community when our son goes to middle school, but we know we are always welcome!

My son has never said 'I don't want to go to school,' in fact he's always happy to go. He started in K and now is in first grade and he is truly blossoming as a learner in this very caring environment. The teachers and staff really understand how children develop and how they learn, and the curriculum is individualized for each child in my son's class so that everyone is empowered to learn and grow at a pace that makes them feel like winners, rather than forcing them to follow an arbitrary curriculum that is not directly tied into what truly interests them. We moved to Santa Fe very quickly (decided and moved in 2 weeks) and both my wife and I are extremely happy we were recommended to Little Earth. I truly believe they are laying a strong foundation for our son's educational future.. and they are doing with it a lot of care.

Little Earth is by far the best school in Santa Fe! Our daughter has attended two other schools and we have been extremely impressed with the quality of education and individual attention our daughter has received at Little Earth. She continues to thrive and grow at this incredible school.

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
