Sidney Gutierrez Schools
Located in Roswell, New Mexico, Sidney Gutierrez Schools is a learning community dedicated to the pursuit of intellectual growth, social-emotional preparedness, and commitment to society.
The school originally launched as a grades 6-8 middle school in 2001, serves students citywide, and has historically been one of the best performing public schools in New Mexico.
In response to strong community demand for the school to serve more students, Excellent Schools New Mexico provided startup capital to help Sidney Gutierrez Schools expand from grades 6-8 to grades K-8. Sidney Gutierrez Schools is a NMPED designated "Spotlight School", ranking among the highest-performing public schools in New Mexico.
"Sidney Gutierrez has provided an incredible education for our oldest son. He has been challenged in ways that bring out the best in his learning style and he has thrived in the supportive learning environment created by teachers and staff. I am thrilled that Sidney is providing that same experience for my younger son with the expansion of the school to elementary grades."
