Los Lunas Schools, home to 15 schools and approximately 8,500 students, prides itself on an individualized and personalized approach to educating its students. Classes of instruction are relatively small; student support services are strong; and the curricular and co-curricular programs are diverse. The pursuit of academic excellence in this district reflects the deep belief that all students can learn and that all students deserve high quality instruction in the classroom. It also means that there are high academic expectations in terms of the basic literates. The educational program is geared to encourage critical thinking and a love of learning.
Los Lunas Schools is one of 63 school districts out of 27,000 nationwide that was accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and achieved the distinguished classification of District Accreditation. We are still the only public school district in this state to achieve this standing. All other New Mexico schools that are accredited by NCA CASI use the less rigorous model for accreditation that does not bring in evaluators from out of state institutions.
Bosque Farms Elementary School which is one of our ten elementary schools, received the United States Department of Education's Blue Ribbon School Award. The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are either academically superior or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement. This program is part of a larger Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about the best school leadership and teaching practices. Los Lunas Schools was named by The Sunshine Review, which is dedicated to ranking state and government openness, as one of the top three school districts in the state with the most financial transparency.
