ATE is excited to announce that two schools in Albuquerque have been chosen as recipients of the 2018 Albuquerque Give Back Program. Both schools have projects that ATE is proud to support!

The two schools are:

Apache Elementary School in Albuquerque, NM


Native American Community Academy in Albuquerque, NM

Apache Elementary School in Albuquerque, NM

In 1967, Apache Elementary School opened its doors to welcome students from the far northeast heights in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Grandparents and parents frequently share their experiences as Apache students when they walk through the hallways.  Apache ES has a long history of educating the children in the neighborhood.  The school is a Title I school with all students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Despite the challenges, this neighborhood school is committed to providing high academic expectations and experiences for all students and their families.

Apache Elementary School will create a STEAM* lab, a play-based learning environment where students explore, design, create, test, and redesign in a multidisciplinary and multi-modality approach. Programming robots, coding, designing and building structures, testing marble roller coasters (simulation of a Rube Goldberg setup that students design), and experimentation with electricity (Snap Circuits, are some of the hands-on activities that will engage and excite students.

Native American Community Academy in Albuquerque, NM

 The Native American Community Academy (NACA) is a tuition-free public charter school in Albuquerque, New Mexico serving grades K-3 and 6-12. NACA was founded in 2006 to reimagine Indigenous education. NACA provides an academically rigorous education that is culturally relevant, community-driven, and strengths-based. NACA's mission is to engage students, educators, families, and the community in developing strong leaders who are academically prepared, secure in their identities, and healthy.

 NACA seeks funding to support the critical tutoring program which provides a needed resource for students who do not complete their work or otherwise fall behind in their classes. The mission of NACA's tutoring program is to create an environment that is safe, supports learning, promotes personal growth, and builds relationships. Held during Out of School Time (OST), students and adults are engaged in effective communication and positive interaction that fosters critical thinkers and leaders. The program draws on NACA's Core Values of Respect, Responsibility, Community/Service, Culture, Perseverance, and Reflection to form the foundation for OST, providing a bridge between OST experiences and in-school learning.
