¡Bienvenidos a Kearny Elementary School!

Kearny is a dual language school that serves close to 500 students in grades Pre-K through 6.  We believe in bilingualism and biliteracy for native Spanish and native English speaking students, and so we offer a two-way dual language program in addition to an English-only option. Our Spanish-speaking teachers come to us from Spain and Mexico, and this brings a truly global and multi-cultural feel to our campus.

At Kearny, we value social justice and equity. We celebrate the heritage of each and every learner on our campus, and we help children feel free to be themselves by working as a staff to learn about biases and how to dismantle them. We also work on these concepts with our students so that we can teach them to be kind and open-minded young people.

We value mindfulness at Kearny and start each day with moments of mindfulness during our morning announcements. Through the sponsorship of Los Alamos National Labs and in partnership with the Rio Grande Mindfulness Institute, staff are learning more about mindfulness so that we may practice this more with students in an effort to promote wellness and social-emotional well-being.

We develop our culture at Kearny through Positive Behavioral Intervention and Support. This essentially means that we provide support for students and focus on positive behaviors. Peacemakers, a student group, also helps to promote a harmonious school culture.

We develop the leadership capacities of our students through the Kearny Student Council. This organization of student leaders organizes fun days like Pajama Day, as well as school-wide service learning projects such as Pennies for Patients, a fundraiser for leukemia patients.

Kearny offers engaging programming, including ice skating for 2nd grade, National Dance Institute for 3rd grade, flamenco for 6th grade, and Cooking with Kids for all grade levels. Cooking with Kids teaches healthy eating and hands-on cooking. Kearny has also partnered for special projects with local arts collective Meow Wolf and with the Santa Fe School of Flamenco.  We have a robust robotics collection that students explore during their Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) time.

We offer Parent Academy evenings so that families can learn more about how to support the education of their children. We also have a Parent-Teacher-Student-Association that works to involve families and support the school.

If you would like to join a warm, vibrant, and progressive learning community, we welcome you to “la familia de Kearny!”
