Norberto R. asks: What are the safe/good high schools in El Paso? I'm PCS'ing there in April and I have a 14 year old daughter. My wife just talked to a friend of hers that was stationed at Bliss and her friend said that it was the worst 3 yrs she had to go through.

 

Her daughter which was in high school was bullied to the point that she had to quit her job to be able to drop and pick her daughter at school. I'm really concerned. Thanks for your input.

We have been at Bliss since Jan 2009. My children entered EPISD, mid-way through 3rd and 1st grade. I felt as if the staff did very little to help my kids adjust to the new school, routines and curriculum. This was frustrating to say the least, for I am well aware that we aren?「どィび「t the first military family to move in the middle of a school year. Thankfully my kids are quick to adjust but a little support would have been appreciated. My older son is in the GT program. At our current school, there is only 1 teacher certified for GT, per grade. This means that the classroom is a mixture of both GT and regular (for lack of a better word) students. This isn?「どィび「t a huge problem, but I fail to see when there is time for him and the other GT students to go beyond everyday learning. All the other schools we?「どィび「ve attended (at other duty stations) have had either a seperate GT class or the students met weekly for special group activities. Another issue I have is with the staff being less than friendly with us when we request homework for block leave. They treat you as if you do not care about your childs education, nevermind the fact that BOTH my students are on the A-B Honor Roll! This is only a slight annoyance but even when taking my kids out of school due to my soldier coming home from deployment, they gave me attitude, almost as if they didn?「どィび「t understand why my kids were being taken out of school. I might note that my kids never miss school due to illness, so it isn?「どィび「t like they?「どィび「re never there! The last and probably most bothersome issue, is the bullying. My son actually just called me from school to tell me that someone was not nice again today and the teachers/principal did nothing. This is not our first time dealing with bullying, but the issue always seems to get swept under the rug. One of the incidents was dealing with someone writing and taping nasty notes to lockers. The teachers response? ?「どィ?That?「どィび「s just typical for 5th grade and it?「どィび「s going to be like that until you graduate high school?「どィャ. Wow?! Really? Myself and the other parents were less than thrilled. I am quite thankful that we are leaving at the end of this school year, EPISD has left a bad taste in my mouth to say the least!

I lived on Ft. Bliss back in the mid 90?「どィャ?s from the 1st- 3rd grade I went to Logan and LOVED it. Im sure its not the same but they had just built the tire park and I remember having the time of my life at that school. I went to Miliam for the 4th grade cause Logan was full and loved that school too. The teachers were all amazing. I miss living out there!
