La Joya Independent School District Reviews

As a student, I have been apart of the La Joya ISD for about 10+ years. I will be graduating in May 2019; many of my previous teachers inspired me to be the best student I could be. One thing that I believe will really help them grow, is the academic activities they provide, help students search for new interests in the STEM field; giving students the opportunity to attend STEM ECHS to graduate with their associates, has opened many doors for students who were not financially stable and allowing them to take free college courses. Last year during the 2017-2018 school year, I had the opportunity to be part of an amazing team of students, we participated in FTC. FTC, is a robotics competition that allowed us to explore our creativity to find a solution to build our robot from scratch. It being our first year, we were able to qualify for super regionals in Georgia after placing 1st place in Austin,TX. That being said, I'd like to thank LJISD for making my last few years unforgettable.

For the most part, the education here is pretty mediocre. There are however, a handful of teacher that go above and beyond their job descriptions as educators, and as a student I was very fortunate to have them as teachers/professors. The Fine Arts Department is a very good program but often gets forgotten and pushed aside by the Athletic Department. The programs offered in this school are vary from academics, clubs, early college programs, and sports. Unfortunately, resources are not fairly distributed throughout all the programs.
I personally think the District can do so much for their students such as explaining as for how to choose their major if considering college maybe suggesting those career test in order to know which inclination of study students are leaning on. Also, expand the clubs on high school such as club of robotics for in my experience the main organizations my high school has is Spanish honor society and National Honor Society. Make students to be more involved in their community by offering places to volunteer for their area, present some of the problems their community needs, make students engage and aware for todays' situation such as DACA and other reforms that might affect students and their families.
