The school is amazing filled with great sponsors, teachers, and students! They prepare you for the next step to college. Academy HS is where anyone is accepted there. The classes are great and many UIL activities you can participate in. We are a small school but what matters the most is the people in the school. As a matter of fact its amazing you can even enjoy your mini fast food restaurants just right across the street! There's Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, Subway, pool station, video game station, and a mini market down the building. As I walk in the building the students, sponsors, and the teachers just make you super comfortable to talk to. It's just a great high school.

What i do wish the school to have is better food, more buses, a bigger building, and bigger classes because Santa Gertrudis Academy HS is filled with many students who want to learn and ready to make that large step to their lives.

Old college housing, with disgusting mold problems in classrooms. Major administrative/teacher turnover seems to be the norm. Perhaps it will get better with all of the changes. My student took so many college classes that did not apply directly to the desired degree plan. All a little too late, I am one of two parents who retained legal counsel to remedy blatant discriminatory practices. So so sad, btw the “interviews” are a smoke screen, they admit every student regardless of how late they apply. Don’t buy into the “hype”. Test scores are inflated, in the four years my student attended it was heart wrenching to see the SG administration turn a blind eye to countless reports of cheating. Better yet, read the reviews from the students (the grammatical errors say it all). Perhaps over four years ago it was something but during our time there it developed into nothing noteworthy.
Santa Gertrudis Academy Highschool provides a welcoming and accepting environment for all students, making sure to accommodate to each student's needs. Though lacking a proper healthy facility setup and abundance of resources, Academy Highschool makes up for this with its teachers and curriculum expectations. You are required to have a certain image and hold on your grades as well as attendance since it is a semi-public private school.
