Read what parents are saying about Las Cruces High School
This is the most disappointing school Ive ever attended. They claim to care about mental health but when it really hits the fan they tuck their tails and give sorry apologies. Where was that ‘I’m better than you’ energy then? They don’t take bullying seriously in any sense of the word, they’d rather let you get seriously injured before they intervene. This is one sad excuse for a school. I’ve learned more from the real world and other programs than I EVER had in my years there.

They do not address the bullying at this school whatsoever. If the kid who is bullying is in sped they will make it look like the other child is the cause or put the blame on other children.

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 being "ghetto", all of the kids were always extremely friendly. The Teachers were for the most part good. There is a lot of school spirit among the students. This school is also very diverse. I had several classes where I was the only white student and those classes were some of my favorite. The AES/Gifted program is absolutely fantastic. The facilitators of AES are underpaid but still do their job incredibly well. The sports teams are stellar. The punishments for the students are very reasonable. The point of high school is to prepare you for the real world both socially and academically and Cruces High does that fantastically.

I have a gand daughter and a newphew who attend LC High School. From the newphew and his parents they are very satisfied with the teachers and classes. I would like to know if Las Cruces High has a remeidal reading and math class? My grand daughter is in special ed and she has been left behind. Special ed children from what I understand are not allowed to leave their circle or have lunch with other children if invited. She has mentioned that she is very unhappy and the teacher only said "Poor baby". I know that her parents only found out about this but I just thought maybe I could get a few questions answered. If you have remedial reading and math can she put in these classes with a request from her parents. They all know the principal, she was a student at Zia. She is slow but capable. Please forward this to the principal and possibly he will email me back. I do not expect this to be posted. Just a very concerned grandmother.
