El Paso High is one of the oldest schools in town, built in 1914. The original architecture still stands tall and proud on a hilltop, which is one of the reasons it is often referred to as "The Lady on the Hill". The Football Stadium is located at the bottom of the front steps to the school, a magnificent entrance with huge pillars and a lot of cornice not only on the exterior architecture, but throughout the interior as well. It's an inspiration and so are the teacher's I've met in the two years my son has been attending school here. El Paso High is also a "Magnet School" for a Dual-Language Program, "Connecting Worlds", where students take classes in both English and Spanish. Obviously, this program helps students become proficient in both languages. El Paso High also has a new Bi-Lingual Principal, Kristine Ferret. During this 1st year of her administration, I have seen her organize and attend numerous meetings to reach out to the school's parents. She is very easy to reach and she is not only visibly involved in the day to day administration, she's been right down on the field with the cheerleaders as they encourage the Tigers to win. I like what I see, so far.
Well i like El Paso High School. This school I've seen since I was a little boy now I am a high school student there. I appreciate the school administrators and teachers. But most of all the jrotc instructors. They are a great help with keeping the school safe and enjoyable. The security personall as well. Thanks for keeping the school safe.
