EL PASO, Tx (KTSM) – It’s an El Paso thing. After you introduce yourself to a fellow El Pasoan, no matter where you are in the world, the follow-up question is always, “what high school did you go to?”

Bragging rights are serious in the Sun City; which high school has the most school spirit, the best sports teams, the best academics, and scholarships? Mostly it’s about community pride and being able to say you’re proud of the community you grew up in.

This year, local high schools graduated more than 12,000 students throughout the county. The Class of 2022 endured nearly two years of COVID-19 learning and made it out the other side. We’re incredibly proud of them and know they’ll go on to be successful in whatever path they take. Congratulations, you did it!
