The academic atmosphere of this school is exemplary. Throughout my high school experience, I have been exposed to various opportunities which have furthered my education extraordinarily. This school has offered me a level of higher learning I know I would not experience anywhere else. It is through this school that I have learned valuable skills, not only academically but socially. The attitude and drive of the teachers as well as the students really shines through. I am proud to say my high school experience was an enjoyable one, all thanks to the administration, staff and students of South Texas Business Education & Technology Academy.

South Texas Business Education Technology Academy is the school i don't regret taking. I chose this school because my home school I did not like their academics. So when I came here that was the first thing I notice. And since i was a little behind they did not rush me they gave me opportunities to learn the subject and to pass the class. And also as i was attending the school they give us the option to take the next level of our learning abilities by offering dual enrollment, and they provide everything to transportation, books, and time to eat food. And right now as i am trying to apply for college the counselors will make time to sit with you and help you apply for college applications, FAFSA, and many other applications you need to apply for college. This school really cares about your academics, but also offer great memories to create your high school experience.
I love the energy and how easy it is to make connections with one another at the school. It is pretty tight knit. I enjoy our block scheduling and career focused education classes. There are many educational opportunities that really put the academically focused school over the top. There are opportunities for Dual Enrollment with both STC and UTRGV, as well as AP and IB Diploma programs. There are a variation of clubs and organizations that are open for anyone to join, and even though we are an academically focused campus, we still have sports like Basketball, Volleyball, Soccer, 7 on 7, and PowderPuff. However the thing that really brings the school down is the administration, and how unorganized they are. Students, parents, staff, security and admin are never on the same page with rules, events or policies. Also, despite being close to many businesses and restaurants, we still have closed campus and are forced to either eat school lunch or bring lunch from home.
