Harlingen School of Health Professions
253 Best Public Middle Schools in Texas
- Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District, TX
Senior: I absolutely love the open and exciting atmosphere that our school offers. Unlike most high schools here in the Rio Grande Valley, our school focuses on team work and independence which they say, will be like most of our college classes in the future. Our school only has one mission in mind, to not only prepare us for college, but, to make us excel in all our classes that we take. Not only does our school reward students who pass their classes, but the teachers make the learning fun and exciting that make us want to come to class and learn. Our school, my class got an award by the state of Texas last year because we had earned a 100% commend rate on our American History STAR test. Not only does it show our dedication for hard work, but its shows our teachers ability to ever give up on us.
I truly love my school for the reasons listed above and will never forget the things it has inspired me to become and want to be in my future as a health professional.

Parent: My kids started when the school opened in 2009. My oldest started in 2nd grade and graduated from 8th grade there in 2016 and my youngest started in PK4 and will graduate in 2019. The school is a gem and unique not only in Austin but only one of 8 schools in the country offering what it offers. Not only are the teachers incredibly qualified, warm, and caring, but they also teach using the International Baccalaureate program which ensures kids foster their curiosity, problem solving skills, and empathy. The school recently added a design thinking program at all age levels that includes a new innovation laboratory. Together these allow kids to explore taking their ideas to reality. Finally, the multilingual education gives kids fluency in three languages - English, Spanish, and Chinese. All these together, plus an incredibly committed community of parents, teachers, staff, and students, make it a place like no other.
