The school program s are very good, however the kids are very rude to new comers...if your kids are just coming in to finish up their junior or senior year expect them to hate it. Money is something to hide behind and these kids do it well. The kids are full of palstic and not real. So tell your kids not to worry about it and just do their school work. The kids heere will have a awaking when they leave home...they will see that they should have been nice...what goes around comes around

The school has a great feel to it and very welcoming and gets kids involved but the education is not like it should be!

Artesia iS a wonderful school. I learned so much going there and was disappointed when I couldn't finish my senior year. The teachers are excellent and the kids there are welcoming. Mr. More and Mrs. Stewart were the best assistance principal and guidance counsler that any kid could ask for. The parents are always welcome to voice opinions and more often then not they are acted upon. You couldn't ask for a better community!

The school has AP programs, various other academic strengths, as well as many other extracurricular activities. The administration invites parent involvement. Artesia Public Schools has the children's best interests in the district as the first priority above all else. The district provides safe school campuses, with healthy learning environments, conducive to creativity and critical thinking. The teachers care about their students and what they learn.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Mexico used the New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment (NMSBA) to test students in grades 3 through 8, 10 and 11 in Reading and Math, and grades 4, 7 and 11 in Science. The NMSBA did not report Science results in 2012. As of 2012, New Mexico no longer uses the New Mexico High School Standards Assessment (NMHSSA) to test high school students, and instead uses the NMSBA to test high school students. The NMSBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Mexico. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
