Pecos High School is very average at pretty much everything, other than sports. Academics can be improved, but they're getting better. Pecos is a small town so there is a small group of people with little diversity. Most teachers do they're best to prepare the students for long term goals. After the Gear-Up program has been discontinued there is a small college readiness. There are maybe five clubs and activities at the school.

My high school experience at Pecos High School was ultimately very average. The academics, certrainly need help but are also average. The boys basketbal, track team, the cheer team, and the cross country achieved a state title. Almost all students are Hispanic/Latino, so not much diversity. Most teachers do a great job at teaching their students. There is a gear up program, which gets students ready for careers and college. There are not very many clubs or activities, there is the guardians, student council, and Spanish club.
What i liked about Pecos High School was all the amazing opportunities the school gave us. For example, Junior year, as a student, you begin to take college classes. This is an amazing way to start a community college and get a feeling of what college is like. Thanks for the school giving us this opportunity, myself as a senior in high school, will be graduating from both high school and community college. I would not like anything to change about my school. Everything and everyone was great here and i am grateful for attending Pecos High School.
