The teachers are very efficient at their job, and they make it easy to come to school. There have been many days where I'm too exhausted to even think, but just imagining the smile on my teachers' face alone motivates me to keep going. The relationships built at this school will last you a lifetime. I always look forward to seeing all my teachers at the beginning of class. The campus is a sight for sore eyes (well for me, at least) and always makes me feel so at home. The students, staff, and administrators are all very understanding and overall well rounded. With their help, the school days are smooth, calm, and always seem to make my day better. Not to mention the food! It's always so delicious, yet healthy. The classes are easy to follow but challenging enough to keep me intrigued.

In Weslaco High School, you have a wide range of diversity in education. Each and every single teacher has their own method of teaching, while keeping the same goal in mind to educate their students. Walking through the doors of Weslaco High School, you are welcome to a warm and comforting atmosphere. In any case, throughout my two years of attending this school, I know that I have my teachers and the staff to count on, and the way that every student's needs are considered and cared for is absolutely amazing.
Weslaco High School is a large school like every other public high school; however, you walk around, and you know everyone. Sure, not everyone talks to the same people, but everyone respects each other, for the most part. The administration is caring and communicates with the students and staff, and the counselors really try to understand all the students they need to help. I know my counselor was always there for me to give me personal advice, life advice, and school advice. She really built that bond with me, and I respect her for truly caring about the students she works with. I respect her for caring for her job.
