Posted July 4, 2009

I went to Cuero for all four years of high school. Everything is very sink or swim, the teachers either do their jobs amazingly, or should lose their teaching licenses. The dress code is too strict and unfairly enforced, and in general it's just half of everything is great, the other half is horrible. However, the extra curiculars are great. The UIL sponsors are just wonderful, and it shows. If your kids have to go here, please try to get them enrolled in something extra, and take advantage of the dual-credit offered there. It would be a five-star school if the school board would cut off some dead weight.

This school is too strict with there dresscode. I thought we came to school to learn not to dress like nuns
