Ysleta High School Reviews

I would love to see change in the office staff and many of the teachers, add more school activities. I had many horrible teachers, from telling me to get over my depression, telling me they don't care if my family member passed away, and insulting me. Many of the dress code given to people are usually chubby girls wearing crop tops, but they don't mind a skinny one wearing a crop top. Our school is really boring, we don't have any activities other than boring football games and dance recitals. The school seems to only care about the football team, making them school activities and more. While we have so many students who have won state competitions, the new generation of early college,and many more smart talented people who don't get recognized because they don't tackle people for a ball. The counselors in our school are not good at giving advice, they just look at you cry. They don't have good organized schedules and are not the best at helping you pick classes.

Studying at Ysleta have given me uncountable memories and experiences. Here at Ysleta I found my true vocation due to many excellent teachers that have always encourage me to try my best at everything I do, They have also guide me in a good path to become someone in life. Although the installations are not the best, they are very good and I have never had any problem in the school. Ysleta counts with many extracurricular activities, which I had the pleasure to participate in some of them, and their sports teams are one of the best in the District,I know that our football team have went to playoffs multiple times, and the baseball boys are Bi-district champions. Everybody in this school is kind and generous with one another, here at ysleta I found some of the people that will always be in my life, and some others that are now gone but taught me many life lessons. For me Ysleta is one of the best high schools is El Paso and I could be glad to spend many more years in there.
Throughout my four years of high school I have never seen a better school then Ysleta High School. When I came to the United States to have a better education I never though that school here would be so different then the one on Mexico but they are completely different. Ysleta high School has been my home for the past four years, I can surely say that we have the best teacher and the best academically program then others schools. Thanks to Ysleta high school and the great opportunities that it has I will be graduating with my first year of collage completed without even having to attend to collage. Ysleta high school has many opportunities that you will not having in any other high school. The teacher are the best part of the school, my four year of high school i had the best teachers of all time, they never give up on their student and the push them to become a better person in the future, no teacher in other school will be so compresive and helpful like the ones ysleta.
