Our mission at San Benito Schools is to provide a premier education for all students, through a positive and safe learning environment, so that its graduates are college, career, military, and workforce ready.

“My favorite thing was our Halloween video, telling a well-known story of La Llorona. It can be a tad bit stressful to make sure we turn in our project by the due date, but the outcome is always worth it!” exclaimed seventh grade student Celes Alvarado.
“We’ve done many great projects, but I have to say my favorite one was the ‘Nailed It’ project, where we dressed up as people or characters,” shared seventh grade student Trey Moore.
Districtwide, students were also recognized for their perfect attendance and rewarded with awards, gifts, and special drawings. The multiple sacrifices of students and parents to make it to class, be it virtual or on-site, are a perfect example of perseverance in the midst of many changes and challenges.
