South San Antonio Independent School District Reviews

The school's culture and diversity are highly valued among the students'. It is a school that offers opportunities that are career-oriented, like ACE Mentor Program, FFA, Robotics, Audio Video Productions, Philosophical Science, etc. There are a vast majority of clubs & organizations, such as Immigration Reform committee, ACE Mentor Program, Interact Club, Story-tellers, etc. South San Antonio ISD has given students' a brighter future and the accessibility of opportunities despite coming from the south side of San Antonio. South San has given the students the experience that they will never forget. This could not have been done without the support from the faculty and staff, and most importantly, the community.

South San ISD was comfortable, the kids weren't all that diverse and most kept to themselves to stay out of trouble. The teachers were average but not terrible at their jobs. The only change I'd wish if any were the kinds of kids that needed help and motivation that came from substandard area's. It would result in numerous skirmish's although no matter how mindless and rash the outcome of their behavior was there was always a underlying problem they couldn't face or understand on their own..
I would like to see more support from the district in extra curriculum classes. As a student I see how we are more excited and involved with the classes that seem to be more fun with new hands on tools that we will more interactive with. The students become more active in subjects when the enviornment is fun and more appealing therefore, resulting in more students attending class, participation, and respect.
