ENLACE  Increasing Access and Success in Education
On-Site Mentoring and Homework Assistance Available!

ENLACE Los Compañeros strives to increase college readiness, retention, and graduation by supporting first-generation students. 

This is a long-standing initiative that works collaboratively with the University of New Mexico (UNM) and the Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) to provide mentoring and homework help for high school students.

ENLACE mentors serve at Albuquerque High School, Atrisco Heritage Academy High School, Highland High School, Rio Grande High School, Valley High School, and West Mesa High School. 

Come by D-14 or the Family Resource Center for more information.

Family Resource Center

The Family Resource Center is a warm and welcoming place in the community where any family member of a WMHS student can go in times of need and as a regular part of day to day life as well.  A place where family members can meet, use computers, get information and support.

The FRC is an important part of our community school initiative. It is founded on research showing that children succeed when adults work together to foster positive educational outcomes and schools work best when families and community stakeholders take active roles in the education of children.  We are located in the Main Building.

We invite you to be a part of your West Mesa Family Resource Center.  We have a school-site team responsible for helping to sustain a shared vision for the West Mesa High School community.  We help align resources and tools that can help students to succeed at school and in life. One of our primary goals is to build relationships among school staff, community partners, and family members.

Programs include:  

  • Mustang Clothing Bank: Located on campus. Adult clothing is available for students and their families. Most available clothing is brand new because Target donates the majority of clothing.  Contact the Family Resource Center for more details.
  • Roadrunner Mobile Food Pantry: Monthly Food Bank Distribution Site. Distribution takes place on the third Thursday of each month during the school year. Please contact the Family Resource Center for more information.
