New Perspectives - Oct, 1992 Issue 

Brush Ranch School
David M. Floyd, Director
Santa Fe, New Mexico
(505) 757-6114

Brush Ranch School is a residential September-May school that works with boys and girls, age 10-18, who have learning differences and are unable to achieve their maximum potential in traditional classrooms.

The school operates on a level system and can handle students with mild behavior/emotional problems, but the main focus is on academic problems and students who learn differently from the approach of traditional schools. A student-staff ratio of 3:1 allows individualized attention to the needs of each student. Each student starts with an individual education plan which is designed to foster progress with a minimum of pressure and anxiety.

The school is located on 283 acres surrounded by the Santa Fe National Forest, and on the banks of the Pecos River. The property was originally a dude ranch, with the school founded in 1970 by Mr. & Mrs. Newcomb Rice. The school is a non-profit educational institution and is accredited by the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges and the New Mexico Department of Education.
