"Texas Education Agency 2014 Accountability Rating: "Met Standard"
Dear Eagle Family,
It is a great time to be an “eagle.” Our students are excelling like never before in academics, athletics, fine arts and extra-curricular activities. They are also setting record number of service hours in our community and surrounding areas.
San Elizario ISD was the only school district, in Region 19, to receive the AP Honor Roll Award from College Board. This recognition is bestowed on those districts committed to offering an equal opportunity and access to an advanced placement curriculum to all students. Over 54% of our student body is currently enrolled in one or more AP courses. Along with AP we have also strengthened our dual credit opportunities. Which will include, for next year, onsite dual credit mathematics and science courses. This year our Senior Class has already surpassed the $5 million dollar mark in scholarships. We are ecstatic to have a Gates Millennium Scholar in Vianey Rueda. Ms. Rueda has also been accepted to Dartmouth University which is part of the Ivy League school system.
Are you ready for some more? Aside from the many district and bi-district championships earned by our athletic teams, we have made history by being the only comprehensive high school in modern history to win 2 state championships in the same year. We are the home of the Class 4-A state cross country team champions and the Class 4-A state boys soccer team champions.
Our band has been racking up awards all year which include advancing to area marching band competition, winning sweepstakes in stage band and receiving numerous superior ratings at their performances. We are currently the UIL Conference 4-A District Champs in One Act Play. Our golden Starlettes are nationally ranked for their winning performance in Orlando, Florida.
The awards go on and on and on which include having the most 1st place medals in SkillsUSA, ROTC, BPA and UIL. At San Eilziario High School we are raising expectations and setting the bar high for our students. As a school we have proven that hard work pays off and that dreams really do come true! Go Eagles!
