Connally High School is an excellent campus with great things happening. Principal Jill Talamantez is working hard to promote student involvement as well as improve performance. The teaching staff is highly qualified and truly work to help all of their students. If you are looking for a place to send your child where they will be able to find a group or organization to help them - CHS is your place! The addition of the newly formed Connally Career Tech Early College High School will definitely work to move CISD even farther forward.
I've been going to Connally my whole life, and as far as I'm concerned it's a good high school. There are teachers in the school that need to learn how to be a teacher first or go back to school and learn some more, but the teachers that do know what they are doing make up for it. The principle is a very nice man, and people, mostly the kids, will make him sound like a bully. He is not, they just don't like it when he has to do his job. He has the students interests at heart and will do everything in his power to make sure that your kid will enjoy going to Connally High. Overall, I enjoy being able to attend this school and I think your kid will, too.
To say I am disappointed in the high school is an understatement. The jr. high was not well run either, but the administrator in question gets shifted around fairly often, so he is likely to have a negative influence anywhere. My children deserve better than we gave them by moving to this district. The demographics have changed radically since we have been in the district which has contributed to the problems. A more effective HS principal (main one) could improve the situation.
My children has been in this school for 10 years, Two have graduated I have one more let and will be moving from this school so my child can get a better education. The main thing for this school is sports. If you work for the distict and have a child in school you have a different set of rules. The princpal of this school is not very good and he likes to grab a hold of your child. I was told this is the best school but its not.
