It’s a great place and great environment for students especially in the academies. It’s full of potential teachers who are actually willing to help us out, and motivate us to graduate and find our paths in life. Sometimes we get stuck with teachers who just don’t care and throw work at us, but our teachers are very determined to help us out and give us adultery advice and help us with the knowledge we will need later in life ; aside from the education!
The La Joya ISD is outstanding with its involvement with its various clubs, activities, music, and art classes. The students love participating and competing as well as do something they love in school. They offer many clubs that can be organized by students such as religious clubs, going green clubs, fandom clubs, etc. The teachers are very proud of their students and encourages them to enjoy the fun of being involved in activities as well as guide them through their academics with many resources provided by our counselors.
