El Paso High School is a really nice school. That it has a small student population helps me get the help I need from certain teachers. We have a rich Mexican culture and the students and teacher are not discriminative. We are a very accepting community no matter sex, gender, religion, race, culture, etc... I am really happy that I attended El Paso High!

I loved going to high school here! The environment, academics, and extracurriculars were all the best part of the experience through my four years. Not only was I prepared for college, but the classes I was offered allowed me to be one step ahead for college.
El Paso High School has a very rich history since it is the oldest high school in the city and an extremely diverse population of students. El Paso High School is a 5A school which gives the students a bigger chance to have a closer connection with teachers! There is a lot of support from many parents and alumni for us the students to enjoy and feel comfortable in this community.
