I loved everything about Artesia High School. The staff was great! The teachers and coaches had a very unique and distinct way of getting through to the students. The events held by the school were amazing! Almost every student got to partake! I felt very safe at Artesia High School. The staff made me feel as if I was at home! They were all very friendly and if I ever had any problems I was able to trust them to resolve every issue of mine. The staff even went a little further to make sure I was doing well in school and at times they gave me motivation and support that was much needed and very helpful!

Artesia High School has many positive attributes that benefit the learning environment for students. For example, the faculty member ranging from custodians to principles are friendly and welcoming. I have had many teachers over the past years help create many fantastic memories. These teachers have also remand persistent and never gave up on helping even through out any struggling. My school is supportive in any and all sport or extracurricular activities. There is a negative aspect on this and it is they the school could be more so interested when it applies to the the students that participate in the Arts such as drama, band or choir. My high school experience at Artesia thus far has been simple and fun-loving.
Over all I think Artesia High School has really good oppourtunuites for their students. I have never had so many teachers that do everything in their power to help their students be succesful for after they graduate. There is nothing that I would change about my school. The staff always makes sure that everyone is involved and that they have the resources that they need. I have met some of the most interesting, outstanding students during my time here. Artesia High School is just an overall, interesting school that is known for it's students success and involment in the community.
