THE FLAGSHIP OF YISD
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. Our school has been and remains the "Pride of the Lower Valley".
