San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District Reviews

Though my standpoint comes from that of a student in Advanced Placement, I had an enjoyable experience at this school. All of my teachers were great, and while the work load did get hectic at times, I had valuable experiences in all of my classes. The food is as to be expected at public schools, and while there is still decent amounts of diversity the school population is primarily Hispanic. There have also been some issues between the administration and students, though that had occurred primarily with the 2018 graduating class, so there are good chances that the relationship will be improved.

I liked how there is time for extra curricular activities such as clubs, sports, and tutoring. There is a vast variety of electives to choose from and teachers that are willing to help. I did enjoy how close of an environment it was and how there was always a way to get something fixed. The main problem I found with the school is the raking system, there are many classes that are preAP based but within the raking system the classes that are seen as regular academic classes are counted higher than the preAP classes. This fact bothered me because I really enjoy school and I am one who takes all preAP /dual credit classes and despite the fact that I do get good grades in all the classes I still get my rank moved back and forth because of students that take regular classes. Hopefully this grading system changes because it is hard for a student to be working hard on high level classes just to see a student taking regular classes get placed above them in rank.
The school has a lot of funding, and is currently working on providing more opportunities for its students, but the tardy sweeps are unreasonable (lunch detention if you’re caught in one, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve ever been tardy before) and the principle doesn’t usually listen to the student body and what they want to see change. Besides that, the school itself is incredibly nice and well kept, and the janitors do an amazing job with keeping it spotless, no matter the weather. Most classes aren’t too large, and there are some truly amazing teachers on this campus that not only help you learn but also grow as a person.
