We want to welcome you to Artesia Public School District located in the enchanted land of southeastern New Mexico. We provide a comprehensive public education to students from preschool through the 12th grade in Artesia and its surrounding communities. We invite you to get to know us!

A Message from Our Superintendent

The holiday season is upon us as we complete a very productive and fulfilling fall semester. Thank you to all of our parents and guardians who have entrusted the Artesia Public Schools with the education of your student. The Artesia Public School District continues to see increased enrollment as we have over 80 additional students this school year, bringing our total enrollment to 3,940. 

Our administrators, teachers, and staff consider it a privilege to be able to work with your child, and we appreciate the cooperative efforts of our wonderful community towards our school system. We are proud to be a part of the "City of Champions!"  

It's great to be a Bulldog!

Superintendent Dr. Crit D. Caton
