    Ysleta High School has the first Environmental Science Academy in the district.  One  of the primary goals of the academy is to instill a sense of environmental stewardship in our students.  Their goal is to address some of the challenges that our environment  is facing and the need to begin living a more sustainable life in order to conserve available resources for future generations.  The academy also provides students with the opportunity to investigate career choices impacting environmental fields first hand by developing business relationships with local eco-friendly businesses.  Students will leave the program prepared to continue post-secondary opportunities and equipped to spread the knowledge they have gained.


    The Ysleta High School Early College (YHSECA) is in its second year of designation, and is slated to have it's third student cohort in the 2019-2020 school year.  YHSECA continues to partner with
    EPCC and UTEP, and is the first early college high school to be housed in a traditional high school campus in the El Paso lower valley.  YHSECA students have the opportunity to earn an Associate's
    Degree on or before graduating from high school, while enjoying all of the stellar athletics, organizations, clubs, and activities that Ysleta High School has to offer.  As well, YHSECA students on
    the accelerated track may qualify to earn an additional 18 college credit hours at UTEP.  For more information, click on the link above.

                                     SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY

    On May 10, 2019 Ysleta High School received a historical marker from the El Paso County Historic Commission.  The marker was placed in front of Ysleta High School with great pride. The Ysleta area located in El Paso's lower valley was the first region of the United States where the Spanish settled.  Our community lies alongside the Rio Grande and the Mexican border.  The school opened in 1927 and serves a mostly Hispanic population today.  The school was designed by the architect, Henry C. Trost, and is rich with tradition. One of the long time traditions that is still at Ysleta High School is the Drum Corp which has been around for over 75 years.  Our school has been and remains the "Pride of the Lower Valley".

                                         MISSION STATEMENT

    The goal of our school community is to educate and prepare all Ysleta High School students by providing academic rigor, strengthening abilities, facilitating sound learning practices, and encouraging beneficial choices so that they may graduate with the skills necessary to succeed.
