School Reviews

San Perlita High School and the district in general has the potential to be one of the better schools in the county and perhaps the RGV, however, the school board, which has remained relatively the same for the past 20 years does not have the foresight or the proper education to lead the school in that direction. The community cannot see beyond familial ties and that prevents the potential growth of this district. Further with the influx of undocumented people, it's has also contributed to the lower scores and the overall quality of education being offered.
