Artesia Public Schools Reviews

Overall the schools do their job of providing a proper learning environment. I can't really complain, the schools do a good job of preparing you for college and teaching essential life skills. The town is small and as a result the community is close. The district focuses heavily on sports, it would be nice if they would give other activities and programs the same amount of support.
Review Artesia Public Schools
I've attended Artesia high for the past three years, nothing has really changed but the fact that we didn't win the state championship this year. Our teachers and administration office are great. We also as senior receive a scholarship from a funder of the town. Living in a small town community has taught me that not having friends isn't an option here, because everyone is so nice and lovely here.
Artesia was great because everything was very personal, you knew most of the teachers even if you didn't have them for class. All of our school was really good friends too which made it even harder to leave for college.
