    "There are a lot of good teachers that prepare students for test such as AP, SAT, ACT, and PSAT test, which in return helps us with college readiness. A lot of students are competitive, which brings up a challenge in terms of class ranking."

    "I, personally, have had a really great experience as a Robert Vela Sabercat, but I have been lucky. Because I am an upperclassman who takes all AP classes and chooses to challenge myself, really amazing teachers & resources have been made available to me. For the average Joe who isn't so driven or naturally gifted, class becomes a "free period." I think there should be more dedication and drive to teach ALL of the kids, not just the ones asking for it. Also, the food is trash. You might want to fix that."

    "I've been a student at Robert Vela High School for my entire high school career. Let me tell you, you will never find a more driven and spirited group of students and teachers than right here at RVHS. I've truly enjoyed spending four years here at RVHS, it's been the best experience of my life and I wouldn't trade it for anything. If you're already a student at RVHS or if you want to be, you should be grateful that you're coming to such an amazing school. I promise that you'll have an outstanding high school career if you come to RVHS."

    "Robert Vela is a high school that offers the ability to earn your associates degree while doing your high school curriculum. Our UIL is one of the strongest in the valley, making it to state on several occasions. Faculty and staff are generous and overall 10/10."

    "Moving from one high school to another my sophomore year was a big change. Attending Robert Vela has made a huge impact on me. I enjoy the company and the help I receive from my teachers. Going to class and seeing teachers you've never even met before and them making you feel comfortable enough to ask for help."
