Posted August 6, 2012

As a 2010 alumni of this high school, I can say the education I received there was of poor quality. The vast majority of students are uninterested in doing any real work and the teachers seem to cater to that attitude in order to not have too many students failing (which would sacrifice their job performance). I can testify that Permian does not do a good job at preparing students for college as the students during their senior year are still being taught how to write a standard 3 body paragraph essay. The AP program is not more challenging than regualr courses, they merely give you more busy work. Permian is considered to be one of the best in the district, but Odessa High is about on the same level as Permian.

Permian is a nationally-known school on the northeast side of Odessa, Texas. Famous for its football program, the school is also excellent in academics as well. View campus photos at www.odessapermian.com

Instruction is improving every year since Dr. Brown became the principal. The consistency of the discipline has helped the teachers and the students focus on increasing the academic rigor in all courses. The extracurricular programs are amoung the best in the state of texas. It is not very difficult to find a group of concerned parents willing to help make Permian a better place to be for their children and all other children.

Located in the more conservative side of Odessa, Permian is nationally recognized for its football and athletics. The academic level is superior to other schools in this district, as well. The campus is about 45 years old and would better than meet expectations of the potential family relocating to the area. more is available @ http://www.mojoland.net
