Los Alamos Public Schools provides students an excellent background in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It could use some better sports teams but academics is the first priority and always will be for this town.

Students are involved and some are very stressed. While academics are quite good, sometimes there is excess pressure on students to succeed.
I was born and raised in Los Alamos county, so I have experienced the elementary school system, middle school system, high school system and currently the college system. Overall, I believe Los Alamos to be one of the top academics in the state. We excel in Science, Mathematics, English, and Technology, however, we lack in the Arts and Athletics. I think the arts and athletics are just as important as the STEM courses because the education system is meant to prepare the people of the future for everything that life throws at them. So when there are students who are interested in the STEM courses, there are also students who are interested in the Arts and Athletics, so it only makes sense to balance all the fields equally. Perhaps there could be more funds and attention brought to the lacking fields, but overall, I respect the Los Alamos Public Schools for creating such a safe and creative learning environment for the kids of the future, including myself.
