Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School Reviews

I have attended this school since sixth grade and I am currently a sophomore. This school has opened up many doors for me. I have created some amazing lifelong friendships because of this school. However, this school is very stressful and overwhelming. We get more than 5 times the amount of work a regular public school would get. Also, we are not treated very well as students. There isn't very many opportunities to stand out and show your individuality here considering we are required to wear a very strict uniform. Another bad thing is the sports. We have no sports teams that actually represent our school. We have lacrosse, but it is an outside program that allows kids from our school to participate. Overall, the school is pretty average.

I attended this school from 7th grade until graduation. There I saw the school in it's prime and was effected in it's downfall. After the departure of our founding principal, it seemed that everything went downhill. Teachers left in the middle of the year with no replacement, along with the school district as well as administration stopped caring about our success/experience. There were years where we were left in limbo without teachers and a principal. I love the school and the level of commitment that the veteran teachers had for us. We as students were extremely close and had alot of help while applying for college.
Rangel is a very small school about 500 girls give or take a few, walk the middle school AND high school halls. As a result of this, a tight-knit community is created with your fellow sisters and the memories that are made from this point forward are priceless. We have the only full-time CollegeBound Advisor in DISD and honestly she is the schools greatest asset; Without her many girls would not have the courage to make it to college/ university.
I would say one factor I would like to see change is the regular high school experience such as the amount of sports and electives offered.
