From the Principal

A special message from Dr. Martha Villarreal
"Welcome to the Vidal M. Treviño Magnet School Learning Experience...

The Vidal M. Treviño Magnet school of Communication and Fine Arts was founded in 1993, the citys first and only high school for Communication and the Visual and Performing Arts. It was also one of the first schools of its kind in Texas. It was founded on the conviction that academics and the arts are equally important to student development and achievement. VMT provides hope to students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to develop their innate talents. ....the school develops the whole individual.

What makes VMT special? The uniqueness of this school is in the way the arts are integrated throughout the academic curriculum motivating students with a variety of learning styles to succeed in high school and in their pursuit of a higher education. VMT is a school that is committed to providing a rigorous academic and art education program to students who desire to pursue their artistic talents. Historical data reflect the success rate of our students in not only the state-mandated exams, and the high level of artistic performance, but most importantly in the high percentage of students completing a college education in fields that they have been exposed to in this campus. We have voluminous success stories and many of the valedictorians, salutatorian and, National Merit Scholars are VMT students. In addition, while we have a wide-diversity of academically prepared students, all VMT students perform at the high 90s level and manage to attain commended performance recognition. This is due to the collaborative and specialized teaching provided by our staff, the high expectations we have of all, the integrated and cross-disciplinary infusion of innovation and creativity in the every day learning experience and the team-approach to learning and teaching that is the norm at VMT.

VMTs goals center on the artistic and cognitive development of our students, the continued strong ties and support of the community and, most especially, the continued strong partnerships with both Texas A & M University and the Laredo Community College.

VMTs vision is focused on the three strands: globalization; advanced technologies and building relationships. Our students must be ready to compete in a global environment, be ready to adapt to new situations, think critically, must possess advanced technological skills and be able to understand the importance of building relationships in order to solve problems. In order to accomplish this, the school understands that learning can not stand still. VMT is a community of learners where real problems are solved collaboratively, creatively and where continuous learning is embraced by all. The teaching staff is truly committed to provide a unique learning experience by planning and creating integrated projects and authentic learning opportunities. The faculty at VMT is comprised of exceptional teachers who are able to make winners of most all the students. A high percentage of our students attain commended performance status in their state exams. Our Newspaper, the Magnet Tribune, and our literary magazine, Tapestry achieve top scores and superior ranking year after year. Every fine arts department has attained a high level of recognition not only at the local and regional level, but at the state and national level as well. Truly, the pride that our students feel for all they do here makes their years spent here a very memorable moment in time. Central to the life-changing experiences VMT provides our students is the strong and all-encompassing Character Education Program we infuse throughout their four year stay at this campus. I feel strongly that an integral component in the development of the whole student is the need to instill those values that will help them make good decisions and lead to the improvement of humanity as a whole ...understanding the responsibility they have in the betterment of this community and society as a whole.
