K-12 Schools

The greater Albuquerque area has a number of good public and private K-12 schools. Public school access is determined by neighborhood. Thus, you need to weigh the types and quality of your local school when making decision about where to buy or rent a house. Colleagues in your department may provide you with information on neighborhoods and schools. The neighborhoods immediately around the University have excellent schools that serve many children of faculty and staff. Monte Vista Elementary School, Bandelier Elementary School and Jefferson Middle School and Albuquerque High School located near the University, are among the highly regarded public schools in the City.
