When I started working here I was stunned at the disorganization of the administration, and the lack of knowledge from the students. There is a complete lack of motivation from the students and parents. At first I blamed myself, but then I realized that a large percentage of them were failing subjects such as art and athletics. The students did not take referrals very seriously due to the lack of consequences. I know for a fact that I got more work out of gang members in inner city schools than at this school. They would even severely fail on an assignment intended to be "easy", such as writing the definitions of ten vocabulary words for homework. They claim to have a zero tolerance for bullying but nothing was done on the matter, even when it was recorded on camera. There is an epidemic of conformity. Several parents have their children when they are young. They live in houses that have been paid for by previous generations and instead of being a parent become their children's friend. There are three generations under one roof. They work for an expensive car but live in homes that have not been repaired in several years. If you move here homeschool your children if you can.

As a former educator at PHS, I can safely say I was mortified when I saw how ill prepared and untrained the students were. I doubt many of them will go to college and if they do they will have a very difficult road ahead of them. If I had children I would send them anywhere else, but most likely I would home school them. There are limited opportunities for them to explore. The facilities are okay, but centered around developing an athletic program rather than expanding academics (and it shows). The parents are involved, but no one has explained to them that it really doesn't matter if 'Johnny' plays ball if he can't read. Most of my students were only concerned with passing (with a 70) when it would've required very little additional effort to get the 'A'. The administration perpetuates these problems by a lack of strong leadership.

I have seen several children that have come out of this school ill prepared for college. I attended the schools in this district for seven years. Now that I am in a new district, I can better see the lack of quality education. Pearsall ISD settles for a less than par standard.
