• Greetings from AHS Principal, Mrs. Cuevas:

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I have the honor of leading our extraordinary school community. We are embarking on a new journey through our newly designed remote learning model.

    I am very blessed to witness our students working toward the next level of their lives. We are the home of the Trailblazers where we serve over 2500 students through various avenues such as our magnet program, Libertas. It is only one of three law programs in the state of Texas! Americas has Project Lead the Way to meet interests in science or engineering, and an assortment of other career and technology programs. This year we will celebrate the first graduating class of our Trailblazers Early College (TEC). TEC is a school within a school concept that allows our students to earn an associate’s degree while completing their high school requirements. These are just a few examples of our list of endless opportunities.

    It is amazing to see our students working toward their dreams of becoming scholars, musicians, artists, writers, athletes, actors, and our future world leaders! Each student is a story not yet told, each student blazing a dynamic path to their future. I have the privilege of witnessing our children’s personal and academic growth.

    As the school’s Principal, I have the honor of leading Americas High School during these challenging times. We will get through these times together because we are Trailblazers and hand in hand we will reach new levels of success. I am confident that the commitment from our administration, faculty, staff, parents, and community, we will continue supporting all of our students in abiding in the legacy of excellence established here at Americas High School. For, I truly believe that education is the key to our future.
