San Antonio ISD children high five community members.

Elementary schools visited San Antonio ISD's Brackenridge High School last week to see their children’s show, Roja Ridin’ in the Hood.

Traditional public school districts recognize that each student is unique and special. A student’s involvement in their own educational path can be a contributing factor to success. Throughout public schools, a wide array of enriching programs, extracurricular clubs, pathways, and specialized schools provide students choices to match their interests. This level of involvement, also called child or student-led learning, is seen when parents and children work together to create the child’s academic plans.

Traditional public schools provide a variety of project-based academic programs including Career and Technical Education (CTE), Gifted and Talented, Dual Language, Dual Credit, STEAM or STEM, as well as a multitude of after school programs and projects. Students will gain skills and knowledge in business and trade programs like Information Technology, Film/Video Production, Animation, Culinary Arts, Automotive Technology, Floral Design, Health Sciences, Fashion Design, etc. Even more, students can graduate high school with college credits and/or associate’s degrees, and industry certifications.

Public schools also offer team sports and extracurricular clubs. Students are introduced to leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and more. From volleyball, wrestling, track and field, to fishing, diving, and soccer, school athletics and team sports cover a wide variety. Students interested in speech, debate, band, drama, agriculture, graphic arts and more will find opportunities to learn and participate. As they join other students with common interests, they can build social skills and learn how to work in group settings.

Choices & Opportunities

The wide variety of programs offered in traditional public schools support student-led choices. As a result, students may easily find their niche, develop their passions and talents, learn through hands-on experience, and open up their minds to what their futures could hold. In addition, valuable life skills might be acquired along the way.
