Our school is characterized by academic excellence based on high expectations and a pre-collegiate learning environment, a high level of accountability for administrators, teachers, students, and families.

Our school strives to ensure that each child who attends MCS can achieve their highest potential in all academic areas while fostering and developing character and community involvement.  Every school decision is determined by this belief.

We are a free public charter school in the Española Valley, serving grades K-12. MCS provides parents in our community as well as outlying communities the opportunity to choose where and how their child is educated.  McCurdy Charter School recognizes the importance of including students from all areas of our community so everyone can benefit from the school’s educational programs and environment.  MCS employees, parents, and community members work together to create an educational atmosphere conducive to high academic achievement for all students in our community.

Our goal is to have a collaborative school environment in which parents, students, teachers, administrators, and community members work toward common, well-articulated goals in a situation highly supportive of challenge and innovation.  This pre-collegiate environment provides the best possible setting for our children to succeed and use their acquired knowledge to help our community.
