El Paso Independent School District Reviews
The El Paso Independent school district is great at offering resources too students such as new laptops and textbooks however, it lacks a sense of direction and organization. Many of the schools that received money from the bond that passed in 2016, have barley put it to use it as of last fall. As a student of this district for over 10 years, it is disheartening to see the absence of supervision and communication EPISD has with its campuses. I attended a high school with no cafeteria and some classrooms did not even have windows. Transportation was awful due to the buses failing to pick students up which resulted in us walking to school and this usually happened more than once a year. Change definitely needs to be made with how they are currently handling COVID 19. EPISD has scheduled students to return in the fall on August 3rd but have yet to mention how they plan to run their classes and lunchtimes. I personally just wish the district would just reflect on their decisions more.
I attend the Maxine Silva Health Magnet High School in El Paso Texas. I have been attending since my sophomore year in 2018, and it has been an overall wonderful experience. I love the classes that pertain to medicine and I have received so many opportunities, including shadowing various healthcare professionals in different setting. Not only is the material I have learned great, but the teachers go out of their way to connect with every student and provide them with the best high school experience possible. It is very refreshing to be part of such a close knit, educational environment and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I look forward to completing my high school education here and will always be grateful for the opportunity.
I have been a student in the El Paso Independent School district for 9 school years. I for the most part found the academics, diversity, teachers, clubs & activities, safety, school culture, music & arts, and STEM are all actively the best part of my school experience. The lacking areas of this district are their college prep, administration, food, resources, and facilities. These are all lack of funding and preparation problems. To change and make it better I would build a SAC building for EPISD because of the lack of full fields and tracks for many of the schools in the district.
