Welcome to the Los Alamos Public Schools!
Our website provides timely information about the exceptional teaching and learning opportunities in every one of our schools. I invite you to learn about LAPS, an outstanding school district with strategic programs for students, staff, and the community. Links to each school are found on the top left-hand side of our home page.
We offer a rigorous curriculum led by Principals and teachers who are skilled in facilitating the learning process and helping every student reach their potential. Our dedicated and hardworking staff are here to serve the students, parents, and greater Los Alamos community.
LAPS is centered on student and staff well-being and in helping every student gain the 21st century skills and knowledge needed to be successful upon high school graduation. I believe in the extraordinary potential of all of our more than 3,500 students and am committed to performance excellence and meeting individual student needs.
In Los Alamos, we have outstanding staff who are committed to supporting every aspect of the learning process. We have teachers who are stimulating high levels of thinking, mentoring each other, engaging students in debating and learning, and provoking professional dialogue. Some of our teachers are even known as “cultivators of curiosity and inquiry.” The results of our remarkable teaching and structured feedback are positive outcomes for the “whole child” and extraordinary achievement gains for students.
We take pride in our diversity and excellent quality of life. Since activities outside of school are just as important as in-school study, I believe in a strong collaborative relationship with our parents, families, and the community. I am committed to bringing out the best in each and every child, young adult, and staff member. As we often say, strong schools are the foundation of our strong community.

Best Personal Regards,
