Las Cruces Public Schools Reviews
Review Las Cruces Public Schools
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?!
My experience at Las Cruces Public School from k-12 was engaging, fun and nothing short of a true academic experience. Aside from the fact that LCPS has very little government funding and not much financial support from the community, my teachers ensured that not only my experience, but every one of my peers all were given equal opportunities in school work, exams and our extra curricular activities. If LCPS was given better funding, I feel that the academic status of our students would flourish. With more funding not only would our teachers be more motivated, but the students would have access to even more opportunities to further strengthen out future as a community and a state.
I am a K-12 Las Cruces Public Schools Alum. High school education in the Las Cruces area is not adequate with reference to preparing students for College. The system is too lenient, which explains why so many students decide to either take a break before or during college, or not even attend college. I believe that high school has become a stage of laziness where students aren't pushed to give their best effort. And once they reach admissions in a university, their level of preparedness is mediocre. The only school in Las Cruces that excels is Arrowhead Park. The excuse may be that it is an early college high school where only core is taught. Maybe that is what we need, since we can't afford to fund the arts in the state. There are many students who major and excel in the arts. But we need to make sure that students are prepared for college as priority.
