The function of TANM is to ensure quality education in the arts and academics for our children, while facilitating a deep understanding and practical application of New Mexico’s cultural roots and traditions.
Our educational philosophy is founded on the principles that a well-rounded education includes the study of academics, art, and artesanía (artisanship). These disciplines are hands-on, creative, and intellectual by nature. This perspective provides students with a positive sense of identity and belonging regardless of their background.
The mission of Tierra Adentro: The New Mexico School of Academics, Art and Artesanía (TANM) is to create an inclusive and thriving learning environment comprised of a demographically and culturally diverse student population with a focus on academics, art, artesanía (artisanship), and the study of the cultures that comprise our rich New Mexican heritage to ensure awareness, preservation, and progression of our cultural legacy.
