Great teachers and good staff. Sports were excellent as well as the marching band. There were fights from time to time with the troubled students, but for the most part things were good. The advanced classes were hard, but the teachers for those classes were top notch. Classes were split into A and B days, so there was more time for classes and learning everyday. The atmosphere was good and welcoming. When it came to applying for college, the counselors were on top of everything and made sure that you applied and did everything that you needed to do when it came to college. There were some good extra curricular activities that almost every student could get involved with. Everyone supported each other. The best teachers were the science teachers especially the teachers AP Bio and AP Chem. There is some staff that are there for you when you need it the most and have nobody else to talk to. They are there for you 100% and will do everything in their power to take care of you!

Weslaco East High School has the heart in everything involved with the students. The teachers and staff do an excellent job in keeping the students conditioned for college and critically want the students to succeed. I've noticed teachers go the extra mile when a student doesn't understand and will do whatever it takes to bring out the potential in them. From my 4 year experience at Weslaco East, I'm proud to call myself a Wildcat because of the guidance received by outstanding teachers. The variety of clubs, remarkable athletic teams, and wonderful counselors, are just a few things that influence the students to try their best and stay persistent throughout the golden years!
Weslaco East was a great experience! Everyone here felt like they were my second family and I was welcomed with great administration and teachers. The sports programs that I participated in were top of the line and I appreciate all the coaches who were apart of my journey. The only thing I would change about this school is the school days, I would like fridays off.
