21st Century is a charter middle school in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We emphasize the core curriculum of Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts, as well as learning experiences in the community, city, and state.
Out of School Instruction
21st Century is not a typical public school. We strive to give students educational experiences outside of the school walls, in the community wherein those skills are practiced. Each grade level attends a minimum of twenty OSIs per year, taking them to locations such as the Natural History Museum, the Roadrunner Food Bank, the Pecos Natural History Park, and many more! These experiences are designed to support student core learning while also teaching the importance of our community.
Smaller Class Sizes
As a charter school, 21st CPA is able to offer smaller class sizes, which allows for more individualized instruction for each student. Each teacher works in both department and grade level teams to design curriculum and plan OSIs that support student learning.
A Private School Education at a Public School Price
21st Century is a charter school currently serving grades 4-8, that has been in place in Albuquerque, New Mexico since 2000. We serve a diverse population of over 80 students per grade. All staff bring years of teaching experience into our classrooms and many have worked together in other settings.
At 21st Century, coordination and collaboration among teachers and staff is central to our educational philosophy. Teachers meet in grade level teams every day to coordinate with one another and to prepare collaborative lessons. Departments meet every week to chart progress and address needs within their subject area.
