So my cousin has been pounding me with questions about the society and certain Lubbock high schools.. he was bullied in middle school because he was hispanic and the population of his middle school is 'white'. He is moving to Lubbock this summer and he is curious about whether or not the kids in certain lubbock high schools are bad or not.. I told him it depends on the kid but that didnt cut it...i am scared for him because i dont know much about the society there. any info would be great...also any dealing with bullying tips would help too.


Thanks

College freshman just out of a Lubbock high school here. There aren't any ethnic clashes to speak of in Lubbock schools, and all of them are more than 25% Hispanic, so that shouldn't be a problem at all. What kinds of activities is he into should be the main question you ask. If he takes mostly pre-AP/AP classes or is into the arts, I can't recommend Lubbock High highly enough. The high academic performers/magnet kids there are a very diverse group, ethinically, economically, and in personality, where everyone gets along very well. If he's not in that level of classes, though, I would recommend Coronado and Frenship since Lubbock High has a rough neighborhood contingent in the on-level classes. Coronado and Frenship come across as civil for high schools as well.

What I know of Monterey (I went to a feeder middle school), I would not recommend it at all because it seems to run off of the "jocks are king" model, and the academics are fairly poor as well. Cooper, though smaller and well-performing academically, seems to be the same as Monterey as far as the stereotypical popularity ladder.
