Great community with great people in it! Socorro Independent School District is the only district I have been apart of and i think its the best place to be. At such an early grade, students are told that college is possible no matter what situation we are placed in. Students are exposed to possible career paths beginning in elementary school. We are taught to dream big and to go out and archive our set goals. Now that SISD has a partnership with El Paso Community College it makes it so much easier for student to get a head start on a college degree while also finishing up high school in hopes of cutting down the cost of a higher education.

Being a student in the Socorro Independent School District has allowed me to explore every program they have to offer. From being in a six time sweepstakes concert band , to being in the Socorro Varsity Swim Team and being able to attend free college courses in the Socorro Early College program, they have done so much for fellow peers and I, it is like if we were the staff's and faculty's children! I personally enjoy the commitment within the district and the patriotism within all SISD schools, excellent sportsmanship no matter the outcome, the representation while on trips out of city and or state, and the effort put into all students.
My experience with SISD has been great! The faculty provides with a safe environment and resources for tutoring and college aid. Although, one thing that i would implement is the redistribution of funding to ameliorate the educational programs rather than the athletic department. Specifically for the I.B. Program (International Baccalaureate )
