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!

I enjoy the diversity throughout the schools, very excepting. The administration is nice but recently ties to implement unreasonable rules they don't end up following through. Has become a more stressful environment than before, but over all is a very good school system. Pride within the schools in the district is outstanding, all love and cherish their schools. Football games are big events and everyone comes to support, can be a fun time for anyone. Our varsity sports are very good and are always a big deal within the school. Specially football, volleyball and basketball.
Originally enrolled in Socorro Independent School District which is identical and related to EPISD. Attended SISD schools since elementary and loved every second of it! The teachers are amazing, the location is convenient, and overall well rounded and outstanding!
