CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - The West Oso Independent School District approved Monday night to explore the need for an all-girls campus.
Superintendent Conrado Garcia believes West Oso will only benefit from having an all-girls school that not only prepares students for college but how to succeed once they are at college.
CEO Lynn McBee gave a presentation about how well students have succeeded since attending young women's preparatory network schools.
McBee said 100% of students have graduated from high school since their first campus opened in 2005 and all were accepted into college.
If an all-girls school opens, the district would only accept sixth and seventh graders then eventually be available to girls from sixth through twelfth grade.
"Think about what West Oso is deep on the west side. To talk about a college preparatory program for sixth and seventh graders. If that's not a wow, I don't know what is," Garcia said.
Members of the district will make a trip to San Antonio to visit a young women's preparatory network campus.
