I think this school has improved from my Freshman year to my Senior year. I had a major problem with math and my grades went low because of it. When I started paying attention in my math class I learned lot. I passed my math Taks. Now I'm going to gradurate with my friends and go on to college. -LLS

The leadership in Carrizo Springs High has greatly improve since 2004, with the exit of the previous superintendent, The New Leadership has greatly improve the education and are in the process of creating a winning athletic programs in hiring new head coach and staff. The School Board has a new vision for the School District and are striving to hold the administration accountable. Eleazar Salinas

My children are receiving a good education at this school. My daughter graduated with 21 college hours due to the dual credit classes she took at CSHS.

The best part of CSHS is the UIL program. It really allows kids to be challenged beyond their classroom requirements and prepares them for college. The band is fantastic and has a long streak of winning. The AP teachers really care about the students but in all honesty overall college preperation is not much of a concern for most teachers.

Carrizo Springs High School may not be the best school academically in the state, but it is the best place for students of the area to come together and bloom into the people they are going to be for the rest of their lives. Teacher/student relationships are outstanding and I know this from experience. The best friends that I have for the rest of my life were made in that school. It's because of Carrizo Springs High that I'm enrolled in Texas A&M University and I'm on the right road to success. When a student is having trouble at home or in school, the faculty and students pull together in support, which is an attribute I've seen no where else. Politics are one thing, but the quality of the people and school are world class. My heart goes out to Carrizo Springs High. Keep up the great work.
