Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District Reviews

What I liked most about PSJA Independent School District was their focus on higher education. They have always enforced college readiness and have a partnership with South Texas College to allow high school freshmens to begin taking core classes to graduate with their Associates Degree. Although, I do believe that changes should be made such as allowing more course load for students to challenge them mentally. Another is to add additional AP courses in the high school classrooms.

My time in the PSJA district has been very beneficial to my education. Since it is an early college endorsed school district, the staff and board members have really integrated the experiences of both college and high school very well. The staff encourages its students to obtain an associate's degree and further our education. They have really made an impact on my life and education and I appreciate all they have done for me.
The opportunities the district offers are good enough to get a student by and ready for college. However, there is not anything remotely diverse or fun about the district. If you are looking to get through high school, graduate with an associates degree, and be prepared for college, this is the district for you. The schools offer a fun and traditional livelihood and the traditions that surround it are cool for small town schools.
