Alief Independent School District Reviews

Being an Alief native, having experienced the good and bad of the community I can honestly say that I would not trade the experience for anything. The books may have been damaged, and the resources may have been limited but the cultural togetherness is quite unmatched. The comradeship between students and teachers alike is admirable but there are some downsides to attending school in an environment. There was a touch of violence here and there, the system tends to fail schools such as these and turns a blind eye to the issues minorities face. However I see this district as an opposition to that, it signifies the importance of educating the youth and giving them to means to have a better future. That being said I would hope to see more programs for college readiness and academics alike and perhaps a bit more of a strategic process of hiring staff based on qualifications and professionalism for future generations.

This school district has helped me in every aspect in life! I've been able to meet people of all races and experience life to the fullest. My teachers here at Elsik have become true role models. I'm big on spirituality and sometimes I find myself battling with what to believe and what not to believe, so I'm blessed to have staff members that I can go to when I need help. There is a place for everyone here. Students just have to dig in deep and apply themselves.

Also, the district need more classrooms with updated computers and fast internet access. Proud Alief.
