Nikki Rowe high school is the top high school in McAllen, Texas. The teachers itself are amazing. The way the go out of their way to make us become successful in the future is so important to me. Our school has so much to offer, especially will college courses here. My teachers who teach that class are outstanding! I love how they teach. It's never a dull moment in class other than test days, but nobody likes test days. Even in our electives they make us become a better person. For instance, I am currently in band and my directors have taught me so much and to not give up and try new things. So I soon then tried out to be a drum major this past year (junior) and I got the position. At first I was nervous but it took a lot from those who helped me get where I am today. I love being drum major even though it has its cons. I've had so many great experiences here at this high school I'm thankful to have be apart of it.

I liked the amount of effort, all the teachers put into helping students go beyond learning. Every teacher made sure each student was getting the proper amount of knowledge. Teacher always offered extra tutoring or assignments to help any struggling students.
My experience at Fossum Middle school has been great. The teachers are always very helpful, you get a great learning experience, and you are given many opportunities that you may not get from some other schools.
