It is often said that Success breeds success and pride develops from those successes. For the past several years, the Santa Fe School District has experienced a great deal of success. The philosophy of the Santa Fe community is that to be an "Outstanding School District," that the school district must stand head and shoulders in the areas of Academics, Extra/Co Curricular Activities and Parental Involvement.
