Mimbres School

Children who have extended hospital stays often miss out on school. At UNM Health, we want to change that. The Mimbres School is a state-accredited, year-long inpatient education program. Elementary to high school-aged patients can learn from their hospital room.

Our licensed teachers tailor lesson plans to your child’s needs—all curriculum follows the New Mexico Public Education Department standards.

Mimbres School is so successful that we've expanded the offering through the Child Life program at UNM Hospital. Even if your child is only staying a few days, we can help them stay on-track with school.

Flexible Scheduling

While there is a classroom on-site, your child can study online on their own. Our teachers work around your child’s appointments and treatments. And if your child feels ill during the day, they can study at night or on the weekend.

You can even bring homework from your child’s school to complete at Mimbres. We’ll send any grades to your child’s school to count towards their transcript.
