Superintendent's Message

As Superintendent of the Las Cruces Public Schools, I want to thank everyone who is involved in the education of our children.  Parents, teachers, businesses, volunteers — all of us — make this district one of the best in New Mexico. 

Following a vision set forth by our Board of Education, we believe that all children can learn and all schools can be successful.  We’re very fortunate to be part of a community that truly wants its children to succeed and to flourish.  And, we’re equally fortunate that we have so many outstanding teachers in classrooms who care deeply about their students and work hard every day to help them learn and grow.

We invite and encourage all citizens to visit our schools, volunteer in classrooms, attend school-parent meetings, and be active in activities that benefit our students.
