i've been to this school from 2004-2009, and i seen the transition that it has went through.At first it was your average gang infested school, fights every week. i know beacause i used to be in them, but then, as time went on it went to a boring, preppy good school like the rest. It was boring to me because the violence was an entertainment and now its gone. it kept the school alive. but now they got an excellent surveillance and extra security. This school has turned out to be safe for students and the teachers really do help the students. It has improved. It's the best school I went to as a student and God willing, I will teach there a few years from now

This is a great school, love everything well at least for me because i have the best teachers there. My teachers for example make learning fun, we are always laughing and jokeing around but at the same time learning. I love that the administration works hard every day to improve our school, for example they try hard to have a great attendance percentage (we usually have 92% or 93% present every day) and we had 98% present on the day of the TAKS test. But there are some things tat could be much better, for example us being a 5A school we have too many people out in the hallways and it is so crowded. Also the Small Learning communities (SLCs) are kind of a joke, we have no class that resembles our chosen SLCs we just have advisory on Wednesdays and they talk of some other stuff. Overall its good!

Our school is an average school. There are some outstanding teachers but then again there are teachers who are so-so or don't care. The school is full of students who don't care and that makes it difficult for the ones who do to actully learn anything. If your not in D.C, A.P or Q classes your pretty much going to be in a class with trouble makers who irritate the teachers and the students. The school is way too many people. During lunch their is a huge line to get food.And they never seem to have enough. There are a few administraters who are great leaders. You see them always lending a hand.Our school has alot of small problems but it isn't horrible.We top the other district H.S. maybe not in sports but in education.

As a former student of this school, I know just how bad things are there. The problem starts with the school board and filters on down to the schools. When I attended this school, there was to much focus on the TAAS and football and basketball. Things that would make the school look good and thus allow for more money to be sent this way. For the first year, we only had a class set of books for each class and some only had a class set of xeroxed pages. Security is a joke and favoritism is right in your face when it comes to teachers. Not a good school or district.

PSJA is a good school, with good teachers, but it's not the teacher's fault that the taks scores are low. It's the students, that don't care, and really don't deserve to get an education. It all starts with how the parents build there child's character at home, because students reflect there parents by how they behave at school. Don't blame the teachers. It's not there fault, the students don't care.
