Welcome to Animas Public Schools
Welcome to the virtual home of Animas Public Schools, home of the Panthers! We are a community of families with strong generational ties to our land and to our past. Located 37 miles southwest off Interstate-10, you won’t find sidewalks or traffic here, but you will find people, most with a little dust on their boots, who are proud of who they are and what they do. You will find a community committed to providing the best education available to its children.
Animas Public Schools serve New Mexico students in preschool through 12th grade who reside in Animas, Hachita, Playas, Rodeo, and Cotton City. We bus many of our students from up to 60 miles away. Because of these extreme distances, we operate on a four-day week, Monday - Thursday.
We are proud of our reputation for academic excellence and provide our students in 7th through 12th grade with laptop computers.
