Alief Independent School District Reviews

Alief is an enormous school district. Its staff, schools, activities, interactions, and culture is very distinct from other districts. The staff are amazing with the students, they allow for their students to achieve success, and they engage very well with the parents. Moreover, the schools allow for diversity of languages, races, and backgrounds to interact and grow together as a family. In addition, they have a variety of activities, including those that allow for students to explore their interests and skills. I am a student at this district, and I have so many good things to say about my district, but a very underestimated statement is to say that I am very proud to be a student at Alief Independent School District.

The Alief Independent District is very strong in diversity, culture, activities, and most importantly, education. This district allows students and staff to grow together and is very friendly and open to new people and ideas. Alief is also very recognized for their resources, academics, and achievements in sports and extracurricular activities. I am very proud to be part of this amazing school district.
Being in Alief ISD my whole high school career i have seen it develop into something great. Our schools are diverse and we meet new people every school year but we also have many cons. Our food quality is very poor, I understand they have to follow to a certain policy but the teachers wouldn't even eat the food neither. I feel like we have a good academic system when the teachers are actually teaching and not lecturing us on what they feel like putting up with, they properly prepare us for college by giving us preparatory programs to help study for the SAT and ACT. Although we have school spirited kids, we are not a school spirit school altogether.I feel that Alief should invest even better in their athletics programs because nobody supports nobody an each programs supports themselves. The only program that is clearly supported is are football team. The parent involvement at our is POOR, parents are barely there to support the kids. the school doesn't enforce it alot.
