Estacado High School Reviews

Estacado High School is an average school that needs to change a lot of things in order to be better. Academics needs to be more of a priority in order to get higher scores. The teachers are good but some need to be more strict on rules and bad students while others need to not punish good students with the bad. Sports are good but students recognize them much more than academics. The food is HORRIBLE! It is bland, hard, and disgusting! The food NEEDS seasoning and flavor. It's understandable that they want their students to eat healthier, but that's no excuse to make the food bland. Many students choose to eat food from other places or not eat at all because of the food. They can continue using wheat for some items, but white bread is best suited for pizza and burger buns. In order to succeed, Estacado needs to show its students that academic achievement should be commended just as much or more than sports.

I was supposed to start Estacado High School my freshman year, but I wanted to try something different and see if I could handle meeting new people in another school. Everyday My friends in Estacado would message me saying to "come back" and also "We miss you" so the end of my sophomore year I really felt alone in a school that I hardly known anyone. The first day of my junior year at Estacado I wished that I hadn't left them. Estacado is A school of Family and Good friends. Teachers encourage and stay on task with me and my grades. I am proud to be a Matador!
Estacado High School was amazing! The atmosphere is great and the teachers really care about you and want you to learn. Also, if you are in a sport, they push you to be the best you can! Overall an amazing school.
