The Los Alamos Public Schools system consists of seven schools with a total enrollment of approximately 3,433 students for the 2010-2011 school year. Two of the elementary schools are located in White Rock and the remaining 5 schools are located in Los Alamos. Enrollment numbers fluctuate throughout the school year. These numbers are based on enrollment as of September 8th, 2010.
A strong academic preparation is provided for all students K-12 based on the individual student's needs, abilities and interests. Each year our students score well above the national and state averages on standardized achievement tests, including National Merit competition. Our graduating seniors qualify for many academic scholarships at major universities throughout the United States. Our academic strength is also shown in the number of advanced level courses offered in English, math, science, history and foreign language.
We are proud to support over 40 middle school and high school sports teams. The Los Alamos Public Schools follow all eligibility criteria established by the New Mexico Activities Association for participation in extracurricular activities. Basic NMAA eligibility standards are outlined in the LAPS Extracurricular Activities Code. Further standards are outlined in the NMAA Senior High Handbook. The handbook is available in the LAPS athletic office (located in the main lobby at LAHS) or online at www.nmact.org.
