The desert provides an ideal setting for children to experience the world of nature. We believe students thrive in a protected, beautiful, and safe environment.
The Learning Pond
Our pond protects two species of endangered fish and is utilized for academic lessons. As part of the River Run Network, we actively work to restore our creeks, streams, and rivers. Additionally, Hermosa is recognized by the Audubon Society and National Wildlife Federation as a National Wildlife Habitat.
The design, construction, and operation of each building on Hermosa's campus supports the natural environment. All classroom materials are chosen with commitment to a sustainable future.
Classrooms encourage accessibility and freedom for children. Shelves are designed to invite them to choose among the materials for their learning.
The classrooms are filled with hands on materials attractively displayed and available at all times.
Hermosa's classrooms are inviting and capture student interest. The materials encourage participation and exploration. The materials interrelate and build upon each other.
Additional materials and resources are provided as we follow the interests of the individual child.
