At Emmett J. Conrad High School, our mission is to provide a safe and secure learning environment in which students gain the academic and career readiness skills to become successful. We empower students to learn by providing a rigorous curriculum, promoting collaboration, and allowing students to be stakeholders in their own education.
Over the past four years, Conrad High School has implemented many innovative programs and research-based instructional practices, placing student academic performance on an upward trend. Students have the opportunity to participate in one of five academies geared toward college and career readiness: The STEM Academy (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), The Finance Academy, The Academy of Travel and Tourism, The Academy of Health Sciences, and the Information Technology Academy. The academies offer dual-credit options and college pathways for students who complete the programs.
In addition, the school offers a broad range of AP classes; a Go Center where students can receive assistance with college exploration and applications; the Education is Freedom program, which assists with college applications, financial aid, and fee waivers for SAT/ACT tests; and free SAT math preparation through a UTA/UTD partnership.
The school staff connects with parents and the community to ensure student success. Parents are valued partners and are encouraged to participate in school activities. Parent involvement opportunities include participating in PTA and serving on the Campus Improvement Planning committee.
