    "This school really focuses on academics. There are little to no outside distractions in terms of extracurricular activities/events which at times is overwhelming as it seems like schoolwork dictates the lives of the students who attend. Which the majority of the time is true, yet the increased workload aids in preparing students for the more rigorous courses to be expected within a normal college or university. In addition to high school courses, T-STEM offers dual enrollment which allows for the student to take college courses and gain credit. This is an amazing experience as it allows us to get our feet wet and find out what we want our major to be in etc. as well as get a taste of the college life within a controlled setting. It's great, I feel much more comfortable thinking about what is coming after graduation because I already know what to expect, I am no longer wandering in the dark. It's a great feeling to know that when the time comes I can hit the ground running and I can definitely credit TSTEM for this. Without this school I don't know where I would be in terms of college readiness/preparedness."

    "Most of the teachers at this school are also certified to teach at the college level. They treat us like the young adults we are as opposed to children which is great as it helps us to ease into the college setting much smoother. The teachers make an effort to have in class discussions and typically push us to really get out of our comfort zone when it comes to approaching new ideas/perspectives. Overall, the teaching styles of evert individual instructor varies greatly depending on the course they are teaching yet the end goal is the same, prepare the students for the next step which for many of us will be pursuing a higher education. And thanks to these wonderful teachers, I for one feel well prepared to take on that challenge."

    "There is hardly any peer pressure in our school; we're a relatively small and simple campus. Almost everyone who applies is accepted. Because we live in Hidalgo, most of us are of Hispanic/Latino origin, so there's not much of an ethnic diversity. We have a few people who consider themselves part of the LGBT community, but they're widely accepted; we even have a club to support those of different sexualities."
