The 2017-2018 school year has been one filled with “firsts” in AHA’s history.  The AHA Student Council is no exception.  For the first time in school history, a member of the student council has been elected to serve as an officer for Central District, a subdivision of the New Mexico Association of Student Councils (NMASC) that oversees schools located mostly in Bernalillo County.


“I am just so grateful to have this amazing opportunity and cannot thank everyone enough for all of their guidance and support,” says AHA Class of 2020 Sophomore Isaiah Manzanares, who will be serving as Central District Vice President as well as AHA’s Sophomore Class President next school year.


Isaiah is ready for both challenges.  For Atrisco Heritage, he explains that “My goal for our school in the coming year is to truly make our school’s name known.  Since we are still considered one of the newer school in not only our district but our state, I want Atrisco’s name to be known and our voices to be heard. I also want to bring greater amounts of spirit to our student body.”


As for his role in Central District, Isaiah says, “I plan on keeping CD a strong vital part of NMASC. I want our district to truly become involved with other districts in performing not only community service projects but projects that could even potentially better the state as a whole.”


Activities Director Jessica Martinez knows that Isaiah will have a full plate but adds “…if anyone can perform both roles well, its Isaiah. His leadership is going to have a positive impact on Atrisco and Central District for years to come.  He’s going to do great things!”


Isaiah’s father, Dominic Manzanares, believes Isaiah’s strongest attribute is his work ethic.


“Isaiah's work ethic is like no other teenager I have ever met.  He is extremely driven and self-motivated.  Isaiah's competitive nature helps him strive to do his best in everything he sets his mind to.  He is a gifted student and has always had exceptional grades throughout his school years.  He is great at prioritizing his responsibilities, from school, student council, sports, band, chores at home, and his part time job.”


“Given how badly he wanted both of these positions,” adds Class of 2020 co-sponsor Shelby Reeves, “it does not surprise me that he won. I wish him the best of luck and I can't wait to see what he accomplishes as AHA's 2020 Class President and as City District Vice Principal.”


“Knowing that Isaiah made school history is something that we as a family will never forget,” proudly proclaims his father, Dominic.  “The pride and joy that Isaiah brings to me as his dad is something that every father can only wish for.  This is only the beginning of all the great things this young man will accomplish!”


Congratulations to Isaiah Manzanares on achieving another of many firsts at Atrisco Heritage Academy.



AHA Class of 2020 Sophomore Rayana Vigil recently became the first girl to win both NMAA State Championship and become an All-American after competing at the USA Wrestling Girls National Tournament. 


Rayana became the “unofficial” state champion after the NMAA introduced a girls’ division for the first time.   The girls were put into eight brackets and winners advanced through the bracket.  Rayana wrestled for the title in the 184-pound bracket against her teammate, Alura Sandoval.


“I was able to compete at New Mexico’s first ever girls state championship, said Ms. Vigil.  “Taking first and representing Atrisco was an honor.  I also travelled to Oklahoma City and competed in the Girls Folkstyle Nationals.”


It was there that Rayana competed against the top juniors and seniors including matches against girls from Utah, Colorado and Hawaii.  She finished in 8th place out of 30 girls from around the nation and earned All-American status. 


“Rayana's got an amazing work ethic, says coach AHA Wrestling Coach Lorenzo Martinez.  “She works out constantly trying to better herself.  On top of wrestling practice, she is in ROTC and weight training. She began her martial arts career in judo and kickboxing, which laid a great foundation for what she is doing now.  Her drive and work ethic is what separates her from others.  This drive is truly why she is a champion.”  


Coach Martinez says Rayana has already surpassed any girl wrestler that the school has had and was the only girl from NM to make All-American at this level.  


“I think that she has barely scratched the surface of her talents.  She has a bright future in the sport and in life.”


Congratulations to Rayana Vigil on her tremendous accomplishment as well as adding to the list of “firsts” that AHA has achieved this school year.

Title I 2015-2016 District Family Engagement Support Agreement

Welcome to the Family Center

Here in the Family Center we provide support and empower our parents to be involved in their student’s education. Our mission is to ensure that parents know and support their children by understanding the next steps to successfully transition from middle school to high school and on to college. We work side by side with parents providing them with the resources they need to help them in the areas that they need help the most.  For example; clothing bank, food bank, utility recourses, counseling referral, tutoring referral,, etc.


Please check calendar weekly for up-dated workshops in the Family Center. Parents you may send your child to the Family Center at any time to pick up a Grade Check form from us.

Teacher Involvement

Thank you to all the teachers who have gone with the family center on home visits it’s been a great learning experience for both of us and is very helpful to the families as well as the students.
