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.
SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY
Ysleta High School is registered in the county Historic Mission District which was the first
part 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. The school was built by Henry C. Trost and is rich with tradition,
including the Ysleta High School Drum Corp which has been around for over 75 years.
Our school has been and remains the "Pride of the Lower Valley".
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 suceed.
