    I worked as a math and science tutor at this high school when it first opened it had it's first freshman class only at that time. I've seen the school grow and hopefully in the right direction. Overall it is a great school with lots of emphasis on academia. Students here are academically enriched as compared to other hs. They surely introduce them to college concepts as well as hands on experience with their dual credit classes and labs UTEP field trip Seminars that presents them with real word situations Science Summer Camps where generously I remember a PhD to Student ratio of 3 20 along with tutors and tons of science fun. It was an honor to work here for the short time I did and recommended this school to anyone and encourage the "kiddos" to stick it through.
