Welcome To New Mexico School for the Arts
The New Mexico School for the Arts is a public, statewide high school that serves young artists with a rigorous, award-winning arts training and academic program.
NMSA helps students cultivate their own artistic voice, fostering broad intellectual development, so that in addition to developing strong technique, students will begin to refine their personal artistic vision and purpose, and the means to communicate that vision through their art.
NMSA is in ongoing communication with the New Mexico Department of Health and the Public Education Department, and we are following and will continue to follow all guidelines regarding COVID-19.

We have created an education that supports the whole student: as an artist, a scholar, and a citizen. Our reach is statewide; students from across New Mexico are positively impacted by our programs.
