Although the school is small in numbers, it has a large reputation in the area for being one of the finest school districts in the region. Banquete received a bronze award from US News and World Report as one of the finest schools in the state and the nation. Great School !

I went to school here and was very pleased with the education that I received compared to other surrounding area schools and schools around Texas. Thank you for the great education and making me earn my grades instead of just passing me.
