We are all Aztecs! Adobe Bluffs, the "small school with the big heart," is a place where everyone feels welcome and accepted. Ability Awareness, a yearly event that celebrates the humanness of each of us, is a cornerstone of our campus identity. We embody the belief that every person is worthy of acceptance and can be successful, no matter what challenges we face. The school community emphasizes empathy, caring, and collaboration while helping students develop skills that will allow them to succeed locally, nationally, and globally.

Our internationally recognized foreign language program enhances our school community, providing Mandarin Chinese language and culture instruction for students and parents. Every Transitional Kindergarten-5th student participates in a minimum of one hour of Mandarin Chinese instruction each week. Teachers collaborate within and across grade levels to provide differentiated instruction through blended learning. The majority of our teachers have been trained in delivering exceptional blended instruction, ensuring that students learn twenty-first century skills while developing a growth mindset.

Our robust education foundation has made it possible to provide each student on campus with a Chromebook. At the same time, our PTA delivers programs such as Odyssey of the Mind and Lego League. This partnership with parents gives our students enriching opportunities to expand their minds and their love of learning and provides teachers and staff with the support we need to do our absolute best for every student.
