We glide to the center of Santa Fe to reach Aspen Community Magnet School. The home of the Gray Wolves, Aspen has a compelling purpose as it’s defining guide for their educational foundation as well as 10 principles of practice for the teachers listed below. An Aspen education is defined by connectedness. They learn in community, immersing students in real world projects that support them in becoming scholars, explorers, collaborators and innovators. They value the community as a critical part of children’s education, a place to learn empathy, to seek common ground, to lead toward a vision of community good and to make a difference. Aspen students see themselves as scholars who are interdependent with each other, their community and the natural world. The 10 principles of practice for teachers are to: --collaboratively build curriculum with shared expectation for students --develop rich interdisciplinary project based units --integrate the arts and STEM practices as critical parts of deeper learning --nurture positive relationships --ensure the student voice is heard in classrooms and building decisions --develop students as classroom and community leaders --build family partnerships as essential co-creators of the learning community --cultivate a culture of scholarship, helping students feel urgency and pride in doing quality meaningful work --ensure the walls of the building reflect and celebrate excellence --create spaces indoors and out that allow for movement, investigation, collaboration and celebration Aspen also offers a culinary arts program, art studios, STEM club and the 21st Century after-school program. Tours are available if you’re interested in visiting this campus to see if it fits your needs - Contact us at 467-4500 or http://aspen.sfps.info/
