Ysleta Independent School District Reviews
Ranked 70th in Texas and 453rd in the nation, Valle Verde ECHS easily outscored other early college high schools within the city. Valle Verde has won numerous recognitions in recent years, including being named a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School, 2019 Texas Honor Roll School, 2019 AVID Site of Distinction, and 2019-2022 Apple Distinguished School. Valle Verde Early College High School is a highly rated. It has 389 students in grades 9-12 with a student-teacher ratio of 21 to 1. This school is the perfects school any student can ever imagine! This is my second year here and all of us, including the teachers, are just like a family. We not only get to graduate with two diplomas, but we also have normal high school experiences like homecoming, prom, spirit week, etc. The variety of clubs we have allows everyone to explore their interests, and if not, it's easy to start a club of your own! I love VVECHS and even after i graduate, i will remain a Spartan forever.
YISD is a money hungry district who chooses to appeal to the parents and state boards rather than the personal education for their students. Many students do not get the proper education or curriculum required for them to learn or succeed. They hire some great teachers, but also ones who only teach for the money and not the development of the students. YISD regulates strict guidelines and policies for students that do not allow them to learn in a manner that will prepare them for the future or for college. It only favors the education of the students already equipped for college and not those who need the help.
The District, as we call it has many fine details that make my education worthwhile, and my future endeavors easier to achieve. YISD has provided me not only the quality educators that develop my character, but the facilities in which to prosper. The district has passed two bonds that total close to half a billion dollars in which to upgrade security, facilities and quality educational benefits. I have gone from a school that was not in very good condition, to the start of the art buildings that are now at the forefront of learning. The sports facilities are top notch, and that have the competition factor already embedded into the programs. Our education is top in the region, and has been recognized for outstanding performance in most recent years.
