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.

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.
