Alamogordo Public Schools Reviews

Going to school at Alamogordo schools, especially the high school was a pretty good experience. At the high school we really didn't have a crazy amount of kids, so I really liked being able to make those one on one relationships with the teachers. The teachers at the high school were always pretty great--there were some that were not so great but the ones that were good were really good. I would like to see the organization at the school change, and the bad teachers let go. I think the school would do great with more structure.

Alamogordo Schools leave a lot to be desired. They are low on the academic profile in the state, and the state is one of the lowest in the nation. Communicating with anyone is like pulling teeth and getting any help for your child is near impossible. Once they took the kids on a field trip and neglected to tell any parents that they were running late on their return (by hours). Kids missed the buses home and parents were waiting at the school for their children while the staff left to go home. There is only one or two teachers that I have had a decent encounter with, but they are few and far between.
I went to Alamogordo public schools all throughout high school, I've lived there until I graduated. Middle school and high school were the worse school years academically. High school was fun, but my education didn't improve as much as I would have liked. I played football and baseball there, we were ranked top 10 in state for football and for baseball we got up to the number one seed in our district. The sports were fun and we were very competitive.
