San Marcos High School Reviews
My experience at san marcos highschool was amazing! Its such a divers highschool with multiple cultures and different kinds of people there. They have everything you can dream of doing and my favorite part is the music facility as I am in orchestra the music we play for everyone is amazing and they love to enjoy it. The teachers are super nice will help you out with anything you need help with an always be there for you in any type of situation like school related or something that is out of there reach they are basically your best friend! The administration is always keeping everyone safe and making the sure doesn't go into chaos and everyone is equally treated. The kids there are very nice to one another event thought I am a freshman and don't have that much experience with this highschool I feel like I'm already connected to it and have a lot of great memories. One thing I would change is the lunch, I feel like it should go back to normal with the hour lunch that we should of had!!
The teachers here are really passionate about educating kids and providing the best advice for a successful future. The biggest downside is that the students here are immature and don't treat the teachers with the respect they deserve. Fights happen very often at the school and little is done to mitigate the amount it occurs. Another negative is that the administration in the district constantly changes our schedule and it's annoying to deal with. Despite the constant changes, this school was fun to experience and build on my education.
It was a pretty good source of education for a Central Texas high school. There’s a great amount of variety in course offering with regular, Advanced Placement, and dual credit classes all being available. Unfortunately the school spent a lot of resources focused towards athletics where they could’ve otherwise improved overall academic success. It wasn’t bad but it definitely didn’t prepare me for college.
