I agree with the previous assesments, Economedes is definitely underrated. The staff has a great connection with students and genuinly care about the future success of their pupils. I have had a great experience at this school. I will admit the overall morale of the school isn't as it should be, many of the students lack initiative and drive, but I feel in many ways it isn't the schools fault. Education is a dual partnership both the parents and student must be commited and be able to invest for their success. The students are great, there are no clique lines or discrimination, the students accept you as you come and you can basically fit in where you'd like. Academics are great, many of our UIL competitors do extremely well in meets and the teachers are amazing. I've developed strong connections to many of my instructors. Hands down a great school.

An excellent school that is vastly underrated. The college prep situation is the best in the area. Clearly the best school in the city.

Economedes High School has a great Folklorico group, Grupo Folklorico Jaguar, the students have worked really hard since the group was founded. Mostly every competition they've gone have brought home trophies.

This is my childs first year at this school and i got a good feeling with the teachers that i got to meet at 'meet the teacher' night. They were able to tell me about what was being taught and tell me about my child in class surroundings. I would love for them to be able to update there website on a more up to date basis as edinburg high does and keep the parents as well as the students informed on what needs to be done,processed for there future. It shows that edinburg high is wanting more from there students and well i can't say that about economedes high even though i emailed the principal about this idea.

In this school teacers try to make the best of teaching their young students that are barely entering High school. Teachers like for students to ask for help when they need it, also to come in for tutoring. Every teacher teaches their own subject and tries to make it fun for the students so that they won't get bored. When tests comes we the students of Economedes try our very best to overcome the obsticles and do our vey best so that we can be the #1 in the nation and be recognized like the way we have been for the past 2 years. Well thats all I have to say.
