Los Alamos Public Schools Reviews

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.

I loved Los Alamos High School. It provided me with a safe learning environment, and all the resources needed to have a successful high school to college transition. It has a place of belonging for all kinds of people with its diversity in clubs, sports, and other activities. The staff and faculty pushes the students to do the best they can, while making sure that their physical and emotional needs are met first.
I started attendance at Los Alamos High School in 2016, the start of my Sophomore year. At first, I was really nervous and scared that I would not be smart enough or that I would not fit in but I was wrong. I was smart enough and despite the stereotypes people had about kids in Los Alamos compared to those from the surrounding communities, I fit in. People are welcoming and friendly. The teachers are great and work really hard to make sure you understand what they are teaching.
