Mimbres School

Mimbres School offers an educational environment within a hospital setting where children and adolescents are assessed to determine social, emotional, academic and behavioral needs. Mimbres School uses technology to differentiate instruction and address each student's individual educational needs. A multi-sensory approach is used to determine effective interventions.

Students are provided with the opportunity to experience learning in a safe and structured environment. Mimbres School works in cooperation with the student's home school to ensure the best possible academic outcomes for the student.
