Programs and Curriculum
Making a Difference in the Lives of Children, One by One
Grand Heights ECC is here to serve the needs of all its students regardless of family background or personal abilities. In accordance with state and federal guidelines, we offer a variety of programs and services tailored to fit the needs of our student population.
As an exclusively kindergarten campus combined with the benefit of small class sizes, our teachers have the time and capacity to identify strengths and weaknesses and work with students one-to-one.
Music and Arts
Kindergartners experience and learn about music through participation and play. In fact, there is increasing evidence that active participation and musical training contributes to increased intelligence in children. Bring on the Mozart!
We nurture creativity through experimentation in multiple art mediums. Children learn to see their world from different angles and create beautiful masterpieces to hang on the refrigerator at home.
Our special education (SPED) staff provides kindergartners identified with special learning requirements or disabilities with direct classroom and pullout services. For more information about our SPED program, please visit our district Special Education and Gifted Program page.
Speech and Occupational Therapy Services
Our staff includes a speech therapist and an occupational therapist (OT) who instruct and train children identified with delays in speech, hearing, and motor skills.
We screen all children at the beginning of school. If your child requires speech or OT services, we will contact you.
Grand Heights ECC is a New Mexico Title I school. This means that we receive additional financial assistance from the government to ensure that all children, regardless of family income, have the resources to meet state academic standards. Title I funds programs such as our before and after school tutoring, reading and math interventions, and ESL.
Students from non-English speaking families may participate in the English Learners (EL) program. We provide learning materials, support, and encouragement for children as they learn to adapt and function in an English-speaking environment.
