This school is AWFUL for English speaking American kids. It's so sad. We had to move just so our kids wouldn't have to attend Archuleta again next year. The teacher mysteriously didn't work there anymore and was replaced with a substitute 3/4 of the school year? They only cater to a certain race. ...  Read more

Our daughter attended ECE at Archuleta Elementary for the 2003 school year. We were very diappointed in the schools overall ratings, but most of all the school has no diversity what-so-ever. By this, we mean it is favorable toward only one race. Archuleta did not even celebrate Black History Month ...  Read more
