    This is a good alternative for the students who are self motivated and need to fast track graduation from High School. Many Students enter the workforce full-time or part time while they continue their education. After graduation many students continue their education at a community college or trade school.

    I went to Genesis because I was sick of going to a normal high school and did not like the high school environment. Genesis was a good alternative because it's much smaller and therefor flexable. I was able to finish my entire senior year in a semester. Genesis has great teachers that are willing to put in extra effort to help you get where you want to be as long as you are willing to do the same.

    This school is helpful to all teens who messed up in the past and want to get their life together and make something out of their life. If it wasn't for genesis i wouldn't be graduating but thanks to them i get to graduate and move on to college early.

    Genesis HIgh School helped me so much to become a better and well educated person. I recieved a huge amount of help from the teachers. They helped me learn the subjects more better and made me smarter than I was before. The staff is very polite and nice when you need their support. I thank everyone at Genesis for helping me reach my goals at becoming a better adult. I really admire everyone a Genesis for the person that they made me today. I loved the kind of style that their schools goes by because it so organized and obeyed by everyone. The classes are really small that way you can work in a better environment.

    I would like to thank Genesis High School for helping me graduate. It has being one of the best decisions i have made in my life. The teachers there not only guide you trough your classes but commit themselves to get you going and help you have that proactive mentality. I was a step away from dropping out and Genesis really was my New Beginning. It had being years since i was excited about being in school and coming here made me really believe in myself. Mr. Granado really does care about getting your future going and i promise you they will really do " WHATEVER IT TAKES" to get you that diploma.

    This school helped me so much. I am infinitely thankful for the opportunity I had by coming to this school and finishing earlier than I would have had I stayed in BISD. A competant staff mixed with well thought out plans renders this school among the elite.

    My experience at this school was far better than I had thought it would be. With the school being so small and the classes uncrowded you get the right help and tutoring you need.

    As a graduating student from Genesis High School I think this school is awesome! We have the best teachers ever!! They will to everything in their power to ensure that we will succed. Attending this school has taught me nit to give up and how to function in the "real world." I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an alternative route for their high school education. I couldn't have done it without you guys! THANK YOU GENESIS!!!

    Genesis High School is a great school. A school where one can learn about self motivation and perseverence. In order to get any where in life you must work to the point of exhaustion and then work harder. If one wishes for their education at Genesis High School they MUST study hard and work harder. Very much similar to life and thats what the instructors at Genesis teach. Skills for the real world; the world past high school and I thank them for it.

    As a student of Genesis High School i could say that i would recommend this school to anyone it is the best school that i have ever attended and i been to alot. The principal and staff create a great family like environment and work with each student one on one. And if your like me and have a child then this is the place to be before Genesis i had no hope i was a drop out and Genesis helped me get my child in a daycare close by and i don't have to pay a dime. Genesis has given me hope again and now i can say that i did it. I got my diploma.
