Abilene Independent School District Reviews

I attended Abilene ISD schools K-12 and I would never have chosen to go anywhere else! The school district is very diverse, meaning I got to become friends with all different kinds of people, and I feel like that has helped me become a very well rounded person. I am in college now, and the academic rigor through AP classes in Abilene ISD has prepared me extremely well. I was also involved in many of the fine arts programs in high school, and they are top notch! I think I have truly made lifelong friends from attending these schools. Send your kids to Abilene ISD!

For the most part, I enjoyed going to school in this district. I spent all my K-12 school years in this district and I feel like it gave me enough room to grow. My education gained in this district gave me the chance to go to a really good college. I think that there is room for improvement for this district including safety. There was always a lot of fighting and sometimes I did not feel safe. Also the food was very unhealthy and no variety. All in all, it's a great place to learn!
I transferred from private school and was anxious. Abilene ISD allowed me so many advantages I would have not otherwise had. Thanks to the medical High School and their partnership with the local hospitals, I am now an EKG tech, a licensed phlebotomist, a Certified Nursing Assistant, and a Certified Medical Assistant...all before college. Many of my peers who could not go to college now have a much brighter future in job choices. I am more than ready for college to prepare for medical school. I will be forever grateful to the staff and educators at Abilene Independent School District.
