I belong to the Ysleta Indepsndants School District. I live outside of the boundaries but have stayed in this district because it has so many great motives and reasons to stay. The reason for the 4 stars is because there is always room for improvement. My school district works toward excellence, so much so that that is one of the things they always remind us through social media, in the classrooms and throughout the year. I have found hope through. I love the school I attend and the future it has set up for me. Without the help of my school district, I do not know where I would be. The superintendent loves the success and so do the teachers. This is one reason why I strive to get great grades. I represent my district, and it represents me! I belong to a blue ribbon school, and the success rooted from the hope and support our district has given.

YISD has been a district that care about us as students. They try to have programs that get us students ready for the real world. They have created programs like the early college at two high schools, which will give the student an Associates Degree once they graduate. They are also creating schools for all women and coming soon an all men school for greater opportunities for the young society. YISD has its signature print as The District and it sure has shown it with new schools being built. The support that YISD give to their students is amazing. They have created a Health Magnet School, which give young students the ability to learn medical in a high intensive field. YISD is a family oriented district where they concentrate in preparing us students for the real world.
This is my 4th year at Ysleta High School and I recommend it to any student. It is a great learning environment with great teachers that are willing to help any student be successful. It also has early college for and dual credit courses. It is a safe school, administration takes every security matter seriously and keeps students safe at all times.
The cafeteria serves different meals breakfast, lunch and dinner for students that are involved in afterschool activities or sports or any students.
Students can participate in more than one sport, band, or other activities.
