WELCOME TO INDEPENDENCE HIGH SCHOOL!
a member of the renowned Rio Rancho Public School district,
Independence High School PROUDLY serves students who benefit from
smaller classrooms with direct instruction. This type of environment is
ideal for many students to thrive to their fullest potential, often
soaring to heights they have never seen before. While we receive the
bulk of our students from referrals made by the District's other high
schools, we also will conduct enrollment interviews with students who
have come to outside the aforementioned referral process. At a minimum,
with very rare exception, students coming to Independence High School
for consideration must be at least 16 years of age and bring with them 6
high school credits.
Together, Everyone Achieves More.
MISSION STATEMENT: E.A.G.L.E.S.
