This school is great. Made many memories and life long friendships. I like all my teachers, not meaning they are always the best teachers but I like them all personally. Many fans show up to all the football games and we get a great turn out of students at them as well, although We spend way too much money on the football team/ stadium for not winning any games. Baseball program is great, facilities could definitely use an improvement, as it is way below average compared to other schools in the district. Especially when it sits next to our football field which is renovated every year it seems like. All in all this is a great school. Administration is a little stuck up and tense as they inforse worthless rules that do nothing for us other than make the students hate them. Also, the iPads have been a disaster. Whether they're saving the school money or not, they are awful for the students because they never work and are always having issues.

I had some phenomenal teachers, but also some not so great ones. My crappy teachers were usually coaches. If you get a coach in a challenging class like anatomy, do everything you can to get a different teacher! Also, make sure to take advantage of the shadowing class and/or CNA class if you want to go into the health sciences field.

Our football team spends a lot of money, but we hardly win games. Tennis went all the way to state! Soccer both girls and boys, and softball all made it to play offs. Everyone comes out and supports our teams rather they are winning or losing. Our FFA judging team and show team has done fair this year many have made sale at major shows such as Houston and San Antonio. The staff of New Braunfels High School cheer on the teams no matter what.
