Sinton High School offers a lot to offer when compared to its small size. The highlight of this school is its highly successful athletic program. It offers a state of the art facilities for band. Academically, the teachers are able to work one on one to ensure success. This school may seem inferior, but the students are spoiled with all Sinton ISD offers!
