We love to learn!
Opened in 1975, Dolores Gonzales is comprised of 450 students in preschool to 5th grade. Our school is named after Dolores Gonzales, a professor at the University of New Mexico, and bilingual education pioneer. It was through her efforts that bilingual education had its beginning in New Mexico. She believed that children should learn both in English and Spanish so that our culture, history, traditions and, most importantly, the Spanish language would be preserved.
