The school all in all is a great school. The staff try their best to help succeed each student. The security is what the school lacks. If anyone wanted to they can just walk into the school without being enrolled and no one will notice. They need better security for the safety of the students. I would give 5 stars if the safety of the students was acknowledged. The school also discriminates sports, such as soccer. I personally was on the 2019-2020 season in the fall and I led my team to the state championship with 37 goals, while also being acknowledged player of the year! We also won the state championship game! The school showed no support to the los lunas high school soccer program. For los lunas high school they only are interested in Football. Which doesn’t make it fair to any of the other sports available. Therefore, I will rate my school a 3 out of 5.

I have lived in the Los Lunas School district all my life. It was a given that I'd attend Los Lunas High School. The thing that I like the most about my school is the school spirit and our sports! I enjoy being involved in spirit weeks and pep-assemblies because it makes going to school a little better. What I think needs improving is our problem with drugs. Our school has a really bad drug problem that needs to go away. Many of the students do drugs and some are even addicted. These things at such a young age shouldn't go hand in hand as it does at my school. I believe that if the school offered help and/or a better disciplinary guide, we wouldn't have this serious of an issue with drugs.
While I was in high school I had many life changes as a normal teenager. My teachers were understanding yet made sure that I was learning at the required pace. The school is beautiful and the staff are ready to go above and beyond to help you succeed. I met my favorite English, Spanish, math, and science teachers here! I had not one bad teacher, they were all committed to our learning. When I began college, I was definitely ready thanks to Los Lunas High School.
