Taos Charter School was founded in 1999 by parents, a group of hard-working and dedicated volunteers who conceived the idea of our school and worked tirelessly to bring their dream to fruition. Volunteerism is alive and well at TCS even today. Parents serve on our Governing Council, participate in fundraising activities with the Friends of Taos Charter School board, help out in the classroom, chaperon trips, coach sports teams, and work to beautify our grounds. Students are encouraged to volunteer during Campus Clean-Up Days. In this way, our community grows stronger and our buildings and campus more beautiful.
