Los Alamos Public Schools Reviews

When I moved into this district, it was after my parents divorced. I used to go to Pojoaque Valley Schools, and moving was a HUGE change. I immediately saw a difference in the value of college opportunities and how administration really set aside the efforts to be sure that every student had some authoritative figure that we could look up to or talk to about our struggles if any. I really appreciated how inclined I feel going into my future of higher education, because I know I have been fully prepared. However, there are some things that I would like to see change. In my years in Los Alamos, I have seen lots of depression and high stress because the quality of education is amazing but intense. This is something I would like to see change and is why I joined the Risk and Resiliency group at the school.

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.
