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.

I loved the effort and critical thinking that my teachers would use to implement their lessons in the class room because it made my learning more entertaining, but it still kept the information that was important to the course. In the future, I hope that my school would hire more teachers that use more efficient learning methods, like the ones I had, so that upcoming students would experience more than just a boring lecture class.
Weslaco East High School is a school that I am very fortunate to have attended for three years. I got the opportunity to finish early and become an early graduate. I had great teachers and counselors that helped me along the way. Overall, I am glad I attended this school!
