  1. This is a great program for SMCISD and its students who are potentially “at risk” for dropping out. I took an afternoon to visit this campus and talked with the administrators, counselors and proud students who were achieving successes in their academic careers. This self-paced program allows students to excel at their own pace and immediately targets those who need additional instruction. Students on the verge of dropping out who then attended PRIDE and achieved an early graduation with honors is not an atypical result of this program. Congratulations graduates and keep up the good work SMCISD.
