Alumni reflection

I am so thankful for my experience and education that I received at LAHS. I transferred to LAHS in the middle of my sophomore year from a much larger school in Texas and welcomed by not only the staff and teachers, but the student body as well. LAHS provided a challenging and welcoming environment for me as an “outsider” and prepared me for my life outside of Los Alamos after I graduated. The courses that I had in high school provided with the ability to look at situations and the world in different ways. The clubs and activities I participated in at LAHS taught me how to break out the mold and be open to differences that other people have and how we can compliment and challenge each other. I enjoyed and valued my time at LAHS that I chose to move to Los Alamos to raise my children so that they too could receive the quality education that I received as well learn what it is like to be from such a unique community.
