About Marie Hughes

Nestled in Albuquerque's West Side near the Petroglyph National Monument, Marie M Hughes Elementary School opened its original doors in 1981 and was dedicated on Sunday, October 18, 1981. In January 2018 our school officially opened its brand new doors in our new, rebuilt campus. 


Marie Hughes Elementary staff is dedicated to provide rigorous and authentic learning experiences to each and every one of our students meeting the needs and serving the community of Taylor Ranch and our district special education programs housed out of our campus. MHES is home of the Husky Howl and each and every day our "Huskies Got That Swag"! 

In addition to our #HuskySWAG, beginning the 2019-2020 school year, Marie Hughes will also become the home of four "Husky Family Houses". We may be four families but we are ONE HUSKY PACK!
