Our Goals

  • Fund innovative opportunities and materials for our schools.
  • Create a school environment in which students are inspired to learn and grow.

We Believe

Excellent public education is every child’s right.

Excellent public education systems depend on:

  • a well-informed and supportive community
  • caring and competent educators
  • supportive and responsive school environment
  • sufficient financing to achieve educational goals

The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation can accelerate improvements in public education through the judicious use of private resources.
