My experience with Alief Independent School District has been one to remember. The teachers of my personal school, Hastings, are more than teachers. They really do care about their students by sacrificing time at home to stay after school hours and tutoring students who need the extra help. The faculty really do put their students first and want to see us be successful in every aspect possible. Alief Independent diversity is very great as well. The different cultures and ethnicities mixed together really create and positive environment on what it means to be accepting of whoever. Along with the sports and club activities, there are many varieties of what one can be involved in throughout their time in Alief. From football, to track, to student council, the options on what to be involved in is numerous and a great opportunity to get involved into something to be better prepared for it in the future.

I am a Student of Alief ISD, and i have a really good experience with this District. Although, I have had more impressive encounter with the AISD. The schools under this district, of which i attend has clean bathrooms and clean classrooms, the school bathrooms are always filled with toilet paper, there are no broken AC systems and also there are no lack of computers in the classrooms. I attend Elsik High School, which is among the schools in the Alief ISD, my teachers and every other teachers keep in touch with parents, the input of parents on on school calendars, food, and even the selection of the new officers is very important to the Alief ISD. The Alief Isd motto "Preparing Student for tomorrow--Caring for them today". The District helps the students to realize their dream, i always wanted to become a gynecologist, but never knew the steps, if to go to medical school or what major e.t.c. but the district provide me with all needed information to attain my dream.
My experience in this district was overall pretty good when it came to learning, but the environment and student relationships weren't the best. More in particular, the middle schools have less than good students. A lot of rudeness and ill mannered students are mostly found the middle schools. However, there were some actions that were made to combat bullying that took place a lot at these schools. The social environment in the high schools in the areaon the other hand, have created close communities with the students, and in these clubs and sports teams, a majority of students were active and involved. Teachers were also active on campus and often did their best with the students. Two schools in the district were named National Blue ribbon schools. For the little resources this school district had for so long, they did pretty well.
