Artesia is really different from their "reputation." You would think there would be lots of fights, but in reality we are a really mellow school. Most of our students just do not care. I remember in 2016 for the district benchmark testing we beat both CHS and GHS, so I would say we are competent in academic level as well. However, the only thing we lack is probably school spirit. It has improved over the years, but I think compared to Gahr we lack in that area. Our sports are not the best as well as our band, but they are definitely not the worse. For band, they need an actually teacher that does not keep leaving every year same with art. The teachers are great, mostly the math department. The block schedule was also a great addition to this school. It really saved my grades this year. I went to a B student to a straight A student since I had time to do my homework, study, and go to sleep at 9. Also don't be afraid to ask the college & career counselors for help!

Artesia is an amazing school with many things, which makes this school unique. All the teacher are nice and explain everything very well. If someone doesn't get it, they explain everything in a different way. The teacher tries to teach differently since there are different types of learners. There's also a lot of help after school, they offer to tutoring each Tuesdays and Thursdays, for two hours straight. They also have special guests at student union after school. The speeches are mainly about college and why it's important. There are many clubs such as Polynesian, Spanish club, Key club, Artesia Choreography Team etc. A.C.T or Artesia Choreography Team is one of the clubs that stand out the most to me, not because of I'm part of it. Both Polynesian and A.C.T perform for rallies. Overall, Artesia is unique high school.
Artesia is an average high school. The teachers are very good as well as the administration. Teachers are also ready to teach classes as well as helping any students. The clubs and activities are great for students to participate and are welcoming. Artesia's campus is fair lots of space to walk around. However, its not the conditions that could reach if they worked more on. The class sizes are big. There is a lot of diversity. The sports are good but wish they would focus on other sports than football. The staff is friendly and welcoming.
