Weslaco Independent School District Reviews
I just graduated from Weslaco High School being a part of the Class of 2020. Overall being in the district of most of my academic years starting from 2008, Weslaco Independent School district is one of the best if not the best at being one of the most heavily student and academic focused districts that I know. In each school, the teachers and faculty care about students’ academic success. Not one school that I attended while being a student did one teacher not care for a student’s success. For example, during the pandemic, the district provided laptops and calculators to students without them and transitioned to the environment of online learning without any problems that I have heard of. They also provided lunch to students and children during this pandemic. These acts provided proof that my years of being a student of Weslaco Independent School District is an awesome experience and one that I’ll never forget.
Overall, the experience at Weslaco Independent School District was great. Every year, WISD managed to improve their care for each of their students! The faculty was extremely involved with various programs: i.e. the athletics program, fine arts program, etc.. progressively expanding and influencing support from various other school districts.
Since it is in an underfunded predominantly Hispanic region, resources are fairly low for many students throughout all grades and schools. It is not an ideal learning environment, but the teachers, administrators, and other staff members do as much as they can to help students succeed, given the circumstances and available resources, which is something that I truly appreciate and respect.
