Hey guys if you're looking for a good school in the Rio Grande Valley, look no further Progreso High School is the one for you. They have an early college program where you can get a head start with college and graduate with an associate's degree in interdisciplinary studies from South Texas College prior to two weeks before your high school graduation. How cool is that! Helps you save tons of money from college tuition!!!

I'm not sure how to state what is needed. I really feel academically the school needs a lot of improvements. A lot of emphasis is placed on sports but not on the Arts department. It doesn't make any sense to me how I study so hard and get good grades yet people who don't do their work or turn in assignments late get a higher average than me. There really isn't a much inregards to clubs that one can join. The robotics club was dropped due to lack of funding yet the two times that we had competed we placed 1st and 3rd. The GT program was dropped from the high school and middle school due to lack of funding. The band department was in need of supplies. We take early college classes which some do prepare for our Associates Degree. The Athletic department has improved a lot from last year. I guess that since we are a small school everybody knows everybody. Our teachers are usually people that went to school with our parents or they are the parents of some students.
Progreso High School is a small district 4a school that accepts everybody the way they are. Everybody gets along with eachother, from freshman’s to seniors there is always friendships in there, especially connected bonds.
