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
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.
