Message from the Principal
Greetings Coyote/Lobo Nation!
We continue to have successes here at the high school. Last week we had our football team make the playoffs, our FFA Sr. Skills team won the District Championship and now, the Uvalde High School, Loud and Proud Band earned a Division 1 Rating this past Saturday! What an accomplishment! That's the sixth year in a row! The perseverance & relentless passion from our students is evident with all of their successes. Nothing seems to stop their determination in achieving excellence. After all, that is the Uvalde HS way.
As we prepare for our upcoming Thanksgiving and winter breaks, let us not forget to continue in achieving our academic excellence as well. We will be having both benchmarks and EOC testing upon our return from the Thanksgiving break. We need to try our very best. All of us need to do our part and in doing so, we will do great things.
As we continue the in-person instruction, we must remember to abide by the following:
- All students/staff MUST have a complete health screener before entering the campus.
- All students/staff MUST wear a face covering & follow health guidelines.
- Outside visitors will NOT be allowed on campus.
The Coyote/Lobo Nation continues to show their dedication to our community everyday.
We will strive for excellence, commitment, and pride. Be safe and "Rep the U!"

Uvalde High School - Our Vision & Mission
UHS Vision Statement

UHS Mission Statement

Uvalde High School - Believing in "U"
Uvalde High School administration, teachers and staff will help develop, implement, and maintain a culture of service that is based on the following:
Students always come first &
All students can learn and achieve.
This precept simply states that failure will not be tolerated. We will believe that when a child fails to learn, it is the system that fails – not the child. The campus (administration and the entire staff) must assume ownership and accept accountability for the learning outcomes of every child. The students shall be held no more accountable than the adults and vice versa. We will value the individual, their intrinsic value and ability to be part of their decision process in attaining a quality education. This belief will provide the foundation that promotes a culture that continuously strives for excellence.
