Responsive Education Solutions (ResponsiveEd®) is opening a new Premier High School on the east side of El Paso at 8720 Gateway E., El Paso, TX 79907. The new credit recovery school in East El Paso will provide students with an opportunity to get back on track with their degree plans. Through a mastery-based academic program, the school offers students early graduation options, a flexible schedule and credit recovery.
With the addition of the new campus, ResponsiveEd will operate 34 Premier High School campuses in Texas and Arkansas. Anthony Edwards, executive director of school operations for Premier High School, oversees the schools.
“It is really important to make as many Premier High Schools available as possible to students who need a fresh start. There just are not enough graduation options for our students. Our programs offer a vital way for students in the area to earn their high school diplomas early or complete something they might not otherwise finish and get ready for college and careers,” he said.
ResponsiveEd has been present in the El Paso community for more than five years through its Premier campus on the west side of town. However, with the rapid growth on the east side, Eduardo Servin, new director of Premier of East El Paso, said that there was a need on for an additional school to serve that area.
Laura Dominguez, campus director at Premier High School of El Paso, said that she has seen a high demand for the Premier education and is glad Premier is expanding as the commute has become difficult for a number of her students coming from the east side of town.
“Here you have teachers who are invested in the kids, we are a small campus, and we know everyone by name. We know where they need to be academically and otherwise, but we want to make sure it is easy for them to get to us,” said Ms. Dominguez.
In her five years at Premier, Ms. Dominguez said many students come from situations where they only interacted with their teachers if they were having behavioral or academic problems. They appreciate the personal attention they receive at Premier.
Ms. Dominguez and Dr. Servin plan to collaborate and have events that involve both El Paso campuses.
“We are excited to be able to provide El Paso students with better access to an individualized educational experience available at our Premier High Schools. I encourage anyone interested in a self-directed education that enables both credit recovery and accelerated learning, to attend our open house events on August 18th and 20th,” said Dr. Servin.
