Welcome to Cloudcroft Municipal Schools

Welcome to the Cloudcroft Municipal Schools website.

We are located in the Village of Cloudcroft, approximately 16 miles east of Alamogordo, New Mexico. We are proud to be the kindergarten through 12th grade education center for a large portion of the Southern Sacramento Mountains. Our schools serve Cloudcroft and the outlying communities of Mayhill, Weed, Piñon, Sacramento, and Timberon—an area covering roughly 850 square miles.

It is our honor to live in a region of great beauty within the boundaries of the Lincoln National Forest. We are also proud of the dedication our student-focused staff members display each day as they educate our students. Our teachers encourage opportunities for growth and believe in teaching from a holistic approach to nurture our students’ minds, bodies, and spirits. While we embrace our rural small town lifestyle, we also prepare our students to be well-equipped to thrive in the 21st century.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our schools and our people. If you have any questions, we welcome you to stop by or give us a call.

Our Thanksgiving feast was not our traditional community event, but our essential lunch ladies provided our students and staff with the same exceptional meal that was enjoyed by all!
