El Paso Independent School District Reviews

EPISD is the district in which I attended for my entire school history, Kinder through 12th grade. I feel that my elementary education was a wonderful experience and I was able to get a good foundation. Middle school was also filled with good memories of interesting lessons brought by my teachers. High school years were the toughest. I attend two years at one campus but then transferred to another campus after having many concerns regarding the lack of assistance in relation to my disabilities. Luckily, after I transferred to the other campus, I was guided, advised, and included in identifying the best graduation path. The best part of this district is that they have a technical trade program, CCTE, which allows students the opportunity to advance in their trade careers. I was able to attend the culinary arts program there. I build my skills in culinary, was given internship opportunities, and build my self esteem.

Academic level needs to increase in order for students to be able to compete on a national level. As for the resources, they could do a lot better! El Paso has basic equipment, a little old, but functional. If they want to increase the level,we need to start seeing changes in this area as soon as possible. When it comes to sports, El Paso doesn't even figure in a "good level". Sports programs need to drastically increase, students need to feel supported and be provided with the equipment, training and other resources need to start seeing changes in the following years. The best thing of El Paso are the teachers! They bring the best of two cultures together and make it work. In general, the majority of teachers in El Paso are as good as they come!
The El Paso Independent School District is one of the biggest School Districts in the El Paso area. The District has many magnet programs offered at various of their schools which serves as a very unique and important pathway for individuals to learn more about a field that they may be considering for their future. However, the management can at times be poor and the decisions the El Paso Independent School District Board makes can be detrimental to both students and teachers, creating a difficult and hostile learning atmosphere.
