"I think that SMHS is a great school. Teachers that ive talked to say that SMHS is one of the best schools they've taught at. There are great teachers at this school. Sure every school has their "bad" teachers. Parents and students get to caught up in what the school is doing wrong rather then the good. The schools art programs (band, choir, orchestra, arts, theatre etc.) are top notch. No matter where a student goes to school it is up to then to get an education. The negative reviews pinpoint wrong. SMHS is an amazing school, if you make it one. Harvard university could be the worst school if you make it out to be. Its not. rattler up bro"
"I hope the new principal will support teachers and work to retain them and grow them as permanent school family. I've seen well intentioned newcomers try to "fix things" with wrong thinking. The teachers are all a long term investment and all willing to learn new things and grow. They are the strength of the school and the new leader should use them to make the school even stronger!"
"I am a parent and I really like SMHS! My student has done very well. Yes, there are areas for improvement, but don't we all need to work on something. If certain people in the community were not so quick to bash the high school, they could see the things that I see. I see for the most part teachers that do a good job and some do a great job. It is like that everywhere and not just at SMHS. You just wait, things are a changing at the high school! I expect great things in the next couple of years. My oldest son has gone on to college. He is an honor student and is consistently on the Dean's list of a Tier I university. I know that I did not teach him all of that. He must have gotten it from his teachers in SMCISD!!!! Instead of complaining about something, get involved and help fix what needs to be fixed. We have a great community! We have so many assets. Stop running the school down!"
"A for effort and let's keep it going. Excited about some of the new teachers and their programs. Ready to see SMHS really grow. Lost a star for this: Academics should be more important than football so that is one thing that needs to change! It's a large school with large issues and challenging to all who work there, so parents...let's put up or shut up. There are lots of ways to support the teachers and kids. Contact them and volunteer. Win Win situation."
"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"
