The residents of San Juan county have a little school in Aztec, located and sponsored by the brothers of San Juan Masonic Lodge #25 (the Freemasons). It’s a special school, one that teaches dyslexic children how to read, with absolutely no cost to the child or their parents. For almost a decade now the school has graduated dozens of students who could not read when entering the program and now have bright future’s because if you can read you can learn, it’s just that simple.

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability characterized by difficulties with accurate or fluent word recognition, by poor spelling and decoding abilities. It is not a lack of intelligence, or due to environmental causes. The San Juan Scottish Rite Learning Center is fully funded and supported by the New Mexico Scottish Rite Foundation. Our school has been blessed to be staffed by fully qualified teachers, trained and certified to teach the children to overcome their dyslexia. Over the years our teachers have come and gone, giving our children a helping hand to achievement. Currently we have two teachers, Dana Reed and Lydia DeVoss, who have been employed with the learning center for many years. Their love, dedication and skill have transformed many young students into thriving scholastic achievers.

Donations can be made to the New Mexico Scottish Rite Foundation a 501C3 entity, a fully tax-deductible foundation. Please send your donations to San Juan Masonic Lodge #25, P.O. Box 1150, Aztec, NM 87410. If you know a child in need, please let us help them by helping those good folks at the Little School that could.
