    "very disappointed, just went to the graduation and was horrible, I had my son graduating and their stupid restrictions are simply ridiculous they are all about the school and not the graduating students that gave it their all, all about making money!!..saw many parents upset, I will not have my younger child go to this school and have one of the most important days of her life ruined, I attended two HS graduations in different areas and were nothing like that, students and families had their moment and followed the usual tradition for a graduation just the way it should be, VERY DISAPPOINTED my kid deserved better than that."

    "Although great work still needs to be done, I believe Artesia High School has the potential to be the Success School that it strives to be. Many doubt this school mainly for its bad press in the past years, but coming from a recent Graduate there from 2011, I have seen worse from other schools. When students from Whitney get caught with any type of drug, they get a slap on the wrist, and possibly a suspension, while in a similar situation in Artesia; bag checks, drug-sniffing dog brigade, longer suspension if not expulsion, and also collateral damage to other students reputation. Or when a fight breaks out at Ghar, it will just be another "kids and their hormones!", but when it comes to Artesia we get labeled as "The Dangerous School". What the point I'm trying to make here is that, yes Artesia needs some work, but it should be apparent to all parents and transfer students that if you look at these past recent years, Artesia has made some great, if not tremendous, progress from the "Dangerous School" reputation it had before. Slowly but surely, if the staff and parents come together, there's no limit to what Artesia High School can achieve. I love this school, GO PIONEERS!"

    "With the exception of a select few, the staff needs an overhaul. Many seem too bombarded with compliance to maintain funding to effectively prioritize the education of our chldren. In addition, the administration is often unresponsive to parental input unless cornered. As the principal goes, I do believe that his overall intentions are good, but his shortcomings come to a disadvantage for AHS students. There is an obvious disconnect between faculty and students and an even greater lack of responsibility. It's disheartening to know that these are the individuals that our children are left to look up to in our absence of 8 to 10 hrs. of each school day. Both parents and students are extremely frustrated with the school's inconsistent approach to achieving academic greatness. Students must be measured by more than test scores, and in doing so should be taught to learn not to test."

    "This was the poorest school my daughter has attended. We thought that because it was in a relatively good area, that the school would be equally as exceptional. We were completely wrong. She lasted a week here before being attacked. The classrooms and horribly disruptive and the teachers are too passive. If you want your child to be challenged in school, this is not the one to send them too. They could not control their students and she was enrolled in all honors classes. Many kids cursed in class and the teacher did nothing. She came home crying every day. The principle was rude, passive and unwilling to help. Many kids come from a continuation school."

    "Artesia has shown great improvement over the past few years. The teachers are doing a much better job of reaching the kids. The principle also does what is best for the school, but has failed to work with and peak an interest from the parents. Most of the parents are from a culture that work is more important than an education. Parents need to get involved for this school to reach the next level of success."
