As a senior attending Trinidad Garza Early College High School I can reassure you that this school is excellent for students who are looking to further their education and receive an insight of how universities work. In my perspective, I got to understand the rules and the work productivity need to be successful in college classes at the Mountain View campus. Furthermore, there are spectacular teachers that are willing to help whether it is college class, high school, or personal problems. Attending at this school was the best choice I sincerely made because I would be graduating with an associate's degree and high school diploma at the same time. Personally, I do not have any problems at this school, but students who wants to play sport would have to try-out in their homeschool because there is no sports in this school. Overall, Trinidad Garza ECHS is a great school that I would recommend any person who is dedicated in their education.

It's a very small school but it's great since each student is able to get the attention necessary to succeed from teachers and administrators. Garza is an Early College Highschool and is in a college campus which definitely helps highschool students get ready for college! There's freedom but there's also trust so it's a great learning environment.
What I love about Trinidad Garza ECHS is not only that students get to take dual credit classes, but the simple fact that everyone is family with each other. I am currently a senior, and from my four years in this school, I can proudly say that this is the school to be in if you want to know everyone at school, have strong bonds with staff and faculty, and have the best support from anyone. I will miss this school whenever I graduate, but I know I will visit and communicate with my teachers in the future. Although there are no sports, the academic side of things is what makes this school worthy of the blue ribbon that was received in the 2015-16 school year. The school also tries to implement physical activity with the physical education class, and we also have a field day where everyone at the school get a chance to play sports, watch movies, or play board games. Trinidad Garza ECHS is the best school for education and long lasting relationships with teachers and students.
