About Our School

As 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.
To enhance student knowledge making it possible for the students to set and reach their individual goals.
           Every student receives help to         
           Achieve their personal
           Goals, both personal and post-secondary, using their
           Life experiences, striving for
           Excellence in everything they do to obtain the
           Success of achieving their goals and diploma.
“Independence High School is a place where Every student is helped to Achieve their personal Goals, both personal and post-secondary goals, using their Life experiences, striving for Excellence in everything they do to obtain the Success of achieving their goals and diploma.”
