There are three after school programs for separate age groups available to both residential and day students. Students take advantage of the time to interact in a language rich environment. These programs are optional and therefore, no NMSD transportation is provided.
Early Child Education (Preschool-Kindergarten/K) students are assigned to groups in Hester Hall. Hours are after school to 4:00pm Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Wednesdays, the program is open until 5:15pm for an additional fee. On Fridays, the program is available to Day students from 1:00pm to 3:00pm for a small fee. The activities include snacks, free play, arts and crafts, storytelling, etc.
Elementary (1st -5th grade) are assigned to groups in the Pinon or Chamisa cottages after school. Hours are after school to 5:15 pm Monday through Thursday activities include snacks, free play, short field trips, structured games, etc.
The Middle and High School programs revolve around NMSD’s athletic program. The program is intended for students who do not participate in the athletics with a schedule that mirrors athletic practice times. The activities are student centered as the students meet on bi-monthly basis to plan their activities to be approved by NMSD staff.
