A 9-12 Paideia Learning Community

Notice of Employment Opportunity


Moreno Valley High School is situated at approximately 8500 feet in the small mountain resort town of Angel Fire in north central New Mexico at the southern end of the Rocky Mountains. World class mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, golf, hiking, tennis, and fishing are all popular activities here, while its small size, high alpine and rural environment, and occasionally heavy snowfalls can be deterrents for some.

Moreno Valley High School has been nationally ranked enjoying a reputation for excellence over the years due to the practice of the Paideia philosophy and methodology across the curriculum, and the high percentage of students taking AP exams. The new Administrator will be expected to use Paideia in his or her leadership, promote Paideia in the classroom, maintain/enhance the reputation of the school and be present in the community.

School Culture: “Moreno Valley High School’s singularly dedicated teachers and uniquely versatile curriculum have played an incredibly important role in all of my successes in life. Our education system in the United States is in desperate need of more schools like MVHS—schools that offer a 5-star education to those who would not otherwise have a chance to receive it. MVHS never taught me what to think, but how to think, both critically and creatively, and I am still grateful to this day.” -Dylan Felt, MVHS Graduate
