    "For several years our teaches have made an enormous effort to improve the education of our children, but we have to remember that EDUCATION begins at home! therefore, MORE POWER TO OUR EDUCATORS! This year 30 some HS graduated, and Senior Students achieved high honors through Advanced Placement (AP) tests quite an improvement from years past! CONGRATULATIONS SAN MARCOS HS!, and our best wishes to you all! Respectfully, mov"

    "A school is as good as it's teachers and some of the new ones this year are getting good buzz. I am seeing a little more interest in programs that are not football/athletics and that is a welcome change. Let's support the teachers and admin and hope good things continue to happen! The student population is not an easy one, so support is smarter than criticizing."

    "The new Superintendent is fantastic! The academies are are a wonderful way to help the kids find and nurture their special talents. The teachers and staff are very caring and responsive to students and their needs. Great school, great community!"

    "This school is a nightmare for students, parents, and teachers--ultimately, it's a nightmare for the community, too. San Marcos can't grow or improve unless the school system improves. Students at SMHS get bottom of the barrel SAT and ACT scores. Look at the numbers and ignore the administration's hype. Instead of a new football stadium, maybe the community should pour money into teachers and tutors so that this school wouldn't be such an embarrassment for the city. Just look at the Great Schools rating above! Five out of ten. Click on the test scores tab above. What are our tax dollars buying? The principal of this school needs to stop managing like the former kindergarten teacher she is and establish rules for teens, not children. She needs to raise expectations and stop babying students. She allows students to turn in homework even two to three months late, with no penalty to their grade! She allows them to text in class, while the teacher is teaching! Spend a day on campus before sending your child here. It's a beautiful school, but only on the outside. See for yourself."

    "You can get a good education here if you want to. I read all the reviews written so far (July 31, 2012), and the only one that bears truth is that the high number of low socio-economic students make it more difficult for teachers and students to be serious about education. SMCISD offers everything necessary for a motivated student to achieve high school success and/or real world success. Fighting community apathy is the real problem."
