Hmmm, I generally liked the school when I was a student there. But because the lack of college prep. courses, and the lack of any instructor or administrator to atleast attempt to instill the importance of these classes as integral to the future of my success, I have to say the school was mediocre at best. Because I never realized the toughness of college, I totally bombed my first semester. And most of my peers who joined me at UTPAN-Am did as well. Most of us dropped out our first semester and moved on. I happily am back at it, after the military and some growing up, I've realized that college degree is necessary to succeed in life. And La Feria ISD lacks, or lacked the potential to drill this into my head. Instead they focus on the TASK or TAKS.
I am a 2001 alumni of La feria High School and I am greatful for the academia I received there I now live in a much larger city and I am currently attending Grad school. I feel just as competent as others who attended much larger 'better' schools. Great job Class of '01 most of us have acquirred great proffessions and are attending higher education.
The quality of La Feria High School's academic programs is superb, much more than California's. They have many programs, including ones with music, art, and sports. Sadly, the is very little parent involvement.
As a student at La Feria high school, I find that the teachers are awesome! We are lucky to have them. However our district attemp to fix all the wrong things. They care about how we look and focus on sports way to much. Athlets get passing grades if they are on Varsity, and cheerleaders get the same treatment. I thought that we had the 'no pass, no play' rule, and we do but teachers just pass athlets to play. The school has great teachers, students and a great principal but they focus on all the wrong issues.
My daughter graduated in 2002 and I didn't see any problem with the school. I thought they did a great job in teaching my daughter everthing. Her teachers always had the time to give her tutoring when ever she needed. I guess it also depends who your kids are with at school. I personally think that Drugs are always going to be around.It just depends what choices they make. You can't stop all kids from doing what they want. Its not only the kids or the teachers. It also has to do with parents. How you raise your child. Some kids dont have someone to get after them at home. So they get attention at school. You cant expect school to be mommy and daddy too. I think La Feria ISD has done a great job on trying to prevent kids bring ang selling drugs at school.
