We are reaching out to you regarding some recent developments with the Armijo High school program. We are not please in the direction Armijo High school has chosen for next year.  There are two major cutbacks, our students have shared with us. I wanted answers, but teacher said they have none

1. Merging the Computer Science class with the Engineering class.  Currently the kids said they recruited close to 30  students for the Comp Science class and they said its being combined with another class.  Not only is the class size not acceptable, combining the content and the two levels of instruction impossible.  My Child will never get the instruction he deserves. This Engineering series of classes have just begin to build up and with possibly more students ready to join in the fall, this setup is bound to fail.  

2. Armijo High school has a Robotics Club that is recognized nationwide. The past 6 years they have been invited to World Competition, based on their success at the State Competition. They raise 100% of the funds and only requests one storage room to host the Club in. Armijo High school has decided to take away this space for next year. The 100% funds that raised annually brings great exposure to Armijo High school from large corporations. Some of the students have been invited to GOOGLE next month to mentor for a special program. They would not have been invited if there was no Robotics Club.

The Club recruits students to attend Armijo High School. Having an IB program and no Robotics Club makes no sense. Most of the students who are advance in Math & Science navigate to the club. 

There are new programs starting left and right at Armijo with no traction, here is the Engineering program that is already finally starting to grow and they are being cut back! Engineering is the future.

We, the parents of the future Engineers attending Armijo High School, please to the school to 1, keep the Computer Science class and Engineering class separate and 2, allow the Robotic Club to keep their room.


Thank you for your consideration.
