New Mexico School for the Arts opened its new campus next to the Santa Fe Railyard on Monday morning with 250 high school students from across the state enrolled in programs for dance, music, theatre, visual arts, creative writing and literature.

NMSA, which had occupied the former St. Francis Cathedral School building on East Alameda Street at Paseo de Peralta since it opened in 2010, plans an open house in its new building on Sept. 14.
