South Texas BETA focuses on preparing students for not only college, but also their future career. They really focus on making sure that we actually learn the content and not memorize for grades because they realize that’s what will really help us in our fields. Especially having the IB program implemented our junior and senior years helps to prepare us for diversity in the real world and being able to adapt to changes we’ll. All in all South Texas BETA is an amazing school

South Texas Business education technology and Academy has prepared me,from the start, to move toward my goals. I have created a family here at B.E.T.A where there's a lot of opportunities to participate and show your school pride. I'm constantly being pushed forward to meet my goals and always given the opportunity to be organized. This is a school with many programs that assist me for college and educational opportunities
I enjoy the fact that Beta offers many resources for college readiness. The teachers truly have a love in their profession and teach profoundly well. However, I would prefer BETA to have more sport teams such as golf and softball. Yes, I understand that academics are important, however, we should allow students to enjoy their high school life at BETA:)
