Artesia Public Schools have shined a light on who I want to be when I am older. Due to the small location, everyone is friendly to one another. There is always someone who can help, no matter what the situation. Being enrolled at Artesia Public Schools has taught me how to take pride in my accomplishments; also, I can be confident in everything I do. Teachers and administrators set great examples to students. The students’ involvement in sports and other extracurricular activities really show how genuine everyone is towards each other. There is no other school like Artesia Public Schools. Once someone becomes involved with the students and teachers, there is no going back.

I have enjoyed my time with the Artesia Public Schools and look forward to the remaining 7 months as a Senior. I was placed with great teachers year after year. I feel as though I received the best education ever! I was able to participate in sports and maintain a 4.0+ GPA. I feel this is strongly due to the support of the school staff and community. Through all my experience with Artesia Public Schools, I feel prepared to enter college and be successful!
Artesia is a very competitive school with sports and events. I have always loved watching our famous football team win games and state titles. Our assemblies are not lacking by any means either. No matter what is going on in our school, we find a way to make it a competition between the classes. I have absolutely loved attending this school and I can always look back at my high school experience as a great time.
