I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.”

Jostens All Things Graduation

Beginning & End

To begin with, the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of one's destination. It means to know where you're going so that you better understand where you are now and that the steps, actions, and decisions you take are always in the right direction.

Therefore, starting with the end in mind: Order your Cap and Gown now for Graduation!

Tutoring Starts the Week of September 12, 2022

What's the difference between a completer and a Graduate?

What it means:

High School Diploma

A student has met ALL the requirements for graduation.

High School Completer

A student has completed high school courses but didn’t meet ALL the requirements for graduation.

Per Senate Bill 149/463 Requirements. You’re required to attend tutoring throughout the year until you test and passed the E.O.C. (End of Course Exams).

The tutoring Schedule is:

English I & II - Mrs. Sonia Ruiz- Hardister (sruiz@WISD.org) Tuesday at 12:15

History – Mr. Jeffery Saldivar - ( jsaldivar@wisd.org ) Thursday's at 9:30

Algebra - Mr. James Gilbert - (jgilbert@wisd.org) Wednesday at 10:45

Science - Mrs. Bertha Franco - (bfranco@wisd.org) Monday at 10:25

Please note tutoring is required, for any student needing to take an E.O.C. in the corresponding subject area.

Failure to attend tutoring in preparation for state exams may result in a lack of preparation and non-graduation. Students are required to attend all tutoring sessions (s).
