I feel this school has given a headstart into college, by challenging me with AP courses which give you an insight what you will experience once you graduate. They also offer great programs in which you can enroll in. They also offer career programs which you can enroll in, based on your interests. The staff here is great, the teachers promote you to learn and achieve better grades, they are not satisfied until you pass the course with good grades. I feel this school is great for teaching us about life and the challenges that are ahead of us in college. Overall great school to attend, you learn life skills which will come in handy later on in your college career and ultimately in life.

EHS is a great high school! Great academic program (honors and AP), excellent atheletic programs, music, art, drama, mock trial, and is ranked one of the best high schools by NEWSWEEK, higher than ENHS and JEHS. THis is due to the great administrators, teachers, and staff at EHS. Everyone helps in the success of the kids... I know they helped my child and it made all the difference.

I think that EHS is a great school because of how good the teachers are! Basically the school is great!

My daughter transferred from Houston with 30's and 40's, she was doing very bad. When she was enrolled last year as a 9th grader, she was given the attention and guidance and now my daughter is an A&B student, making 90's in math. I is an awesome school. To see a drastic change within the same year, I think that the school has dedication and know how to choose it's teachers.

i am a student here at EHS and i enjoy being here. People complain that EHS isnt right for their child and that the staff ignore their students.C'mon people We have a huge population here at EHS and only a couple staff members. i think that the staff does try to do as much as they can for us students. im going to be a senior this coming 2009-2010 school year and since i have been a freshman i feel that i have gottin the help and attention i have needed from the staff.

Having attended this school, an '07 alumni, I can honestly say that Edinburg High School is one of the better high schools in the valley. I have been to most high schools in the valley and know first hand that we have the staff and vibrant student body that makes a great school. I was never in the top ten percent, not even the top quarter and I always got plenty of attention and help from the counselors and other staff. I think our financial aid officer is one of the finest that the valley has to offer. She is extremely knowledgable and helps every student that demonstrates a desire to reach the next level. Academics aside, EHS has a high level of extracurricular performance and has one of the elite basketball programs in the RGV. As a student, I know EHS is one of the better highschools in the RGV.

I am a parent of a 2007 graduate. My child was basically ignored by the counseling staff until they discovered her ACT and SAT scores. All their efforts, meetings, guidance for college, scholarship advice, etc. is geared for the 'top 10%.' My daughter said the school made regular announcements for these students to come to special meetings, etc. to get college-bound advice. My daughter had better ACT/SAT scores than some of these students and got accepted to two top 10 universities. This was not due to help from the school but something we had to do on our own. I believe this school ignores what they perceive to be lower performing students and only focus on the top group. If you are a parent you should be concerned with this school's practices...

I graduated in 2003. I feel that if I had not gone to this high school I would not have done as well as I have. I was motivated to learn, achieve, and participate in extra curricular activities. I felt that the administration was always there for the students when needed. I was an officer of the dance team, graduated in three years, and still had time to be an officer in 5 other extracurricular programs. This school pushed for us to be college bound and participate in concurrent enrollment at UTPA and brought STC to us. I graduated top 10 in my class and I would have never done this well without the motivation of my parents and this campus. - D. Rios

As far as quality of academic programs gos, Edinburg High School was just rated as academically unacceptable because of their TAKS scores and a variety of other things. The way extracurricular activities go at EHS is, your only aloud to participate in one activity, or else the coaches get after the students for missing out on one of there practices to go to another practice. This coming from experience with my daughter who was in 6 or 7 different activities. Apart from this I haven't really heard of any plans to increase the amount of parental involvement or to get more student involvement for that matter. But on a scale of one through ten, I would give EHS a 5.

I am currently a junior at ehs and I can't believe that people would be so cruel to say such things about mrs. Guerra. I absoulutely love being a student at EHS and I would never think of going to any of the other edinburg schools. Our school is backed by tradition of academic exelence as well as extra curricular achievements I guess you have to attend the school to know what I'm talking about but there are plenty of programs available for students to take advantage of to get into college. We even have a financial aid officer available to us, mrs santiago really goes out of her way to inform us of test dates fees college nights and helps us get everything done. Go bobcats

I am very excited to say that I've seen many good teachers walk the halls of EHS. I am also disappointed to say, that the principal is NOT genuinely one amongst those positive and enthused educators who are there for students FIRST. She seems to bring 'politics' into our school and there should not be any room for that if the students truly come first.

My daughters attended this school not too long ago and the teachers were great. They really motivated my girls to succeed. The counselors were top notch help in helping them find the right colleges. The principal, however, is a cold woman who needs to lighten up a bit.

The teachers and principals worry way to much about the little things and it ends up making the students worry about things they shouldn't have to. I feel the kids need to be focused on their work not on what they have to wear to meet dress code or attendance policies.
