Our Beliefs

 

Motto:   Developing tomorrow’s workforce today.

Vision:  To provide La Feria students the opportunity to participate in a rigorous and relevant career and technical education program that allows for students to acquire academic, technological, marketable, and leadership skills empowering them to become productive citizens who value life-long learning in a diverse and changing world.

Mission:  LFHS Career and Technical Education (CTE) will meet the academic needs of diverse learners by providing dedicated resources, integrated curriculum, and practical experiences in order to address the demands of an ever-changing business world. 

We believe that strong leadership throughout our community of faculty members, students, parents, and associates will move toward our goals.  We hold in the highest regard the initiative, innovation, planning, effort, and teamwork that result in academic rigor, in standard setting student performance, and in continuous improvement.

Through a comprehensive and coherent study of the sixteen clusters identified and approved by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), CTE will provide students with the academic and technical skills they need to continue their education at the post-secondary level.
