12 Parent Reviews for Las Cruces High School

I graduated from Las Cruces High School in 2012 after transferring from a rather affluent school in Albuquerque where I had been mercilessly harassed and bullied. I absolutely adored Cruces and to this day am thankful that I attended there. Although the school has a (somewhat deserved) reputation for ...  Read more

LCHS is an obvious choice. The student body is well diverse and cliches didn't exclude students in any way from socialization. Teachers are very helpful in showing students options for college; such as AP exams, submittal letters to colleges, course options. Extracurricular activities are amazing.

The building is decrepit and badly maintained. Also, the administration enforces useless policies regarding ...  Read more

LCHS has been the best experience of my life...and I now have no idea why we need to bring in a new schedule. Academics have always been high for Cruces and no one can honestly deny that. We are able and with our test scores have proven that LCHS is the Best School. We can win on the field, the court ...  Read more

LCHS is a great school with wonderful teachers. A student will surely find his or her niche at this large school with over 2,400 students, there is always something to do. Academics have often been overlooked, but with the new principal, they have finally been placed at the number one priority. Sports ...  Read more
