Purple Star Schools
Holloman Air Force Base and Alamogordo Public Schools have a partnership working together to ensure that all military students are successful in their educational endeavors while their parents are assigned to Holloman Air Force Base. We value that partnership and are proud to announce that in November 2020, the Alamogordo Public Schools School Board adopted a resolution enabling our district to award campuses the Purple Star School Designation.
This designation shows that this campus is a military-friendly campus and has specifically trained its staff to understand, help transition, and support our military students. In order to be a Purple Star School campus, the campus has submitted an application showing their programs, staff teams, and activities supporting military students and their families. The applications were reviewed by a team to ensure all areas of the program requirements were met and are sustainable in the future.
In January 2021, three APS campuses were awarded the status of Purple Star School.
These campuses are:
- Alamogordo High School,
- Holloman Middle School, and
- Holloman Elementary School.
APS is proud to support our military families by offering a successful education!
