My experience with las cruces public schools was great. My school (centennial) had a huge diversity of students and the school district provided teachers and/or recourses to students with specific needs. Overall it was good but my only complaint would be the school lunches. They met the requirements for the amount of vegetables, protein, carbs, etc but it did not looks appealing most of the time.

Great teachers at Arrowhead Park! They always took their time to make sure I, and many other students, understood each part of the material.
One particular teacher has turned me bitter towards teachers, so my review may be extremely biased. She doesn't seem to teach nor engage the students in her class. When I have stopped by she is sitting at her desk eating! The students in her class are running around or on their personal electronic devices. What kind of teacher is that?!
