Amarillo Independent School District Reviews
This district is very encouraging in academic success and preparation, through programs such as Superintendent's Scholar award ceremonies. It has an emphasis on sports, but still takes some time to care about other artistic activities, such as music and speech. There is fairly good competition between schools as each school within the district has its own ups and downs between departments. Teachers within the district seem to care about creating a good environment for education, as some teachers are even nominees for national teaching awards. Facilities could sometimes use some maintenance (such as bathrooms), but innovation and expanding development is often seen throughout the district.
Amarillo Independent School District is a great district. It is a district that allows for growth, success, and opportunity. What I really love about Amarillo Independent School District is the diversity seeing that there are students from all over the world here.
The Amarillo Independent School District in my opinion is great. I love it because first of all, it is the school district in which I live in. The second reason for which it is an extraordinary school district is because the schools, and teachers are nice, trustful, and diverse. I go to Palo Duro High School here in Amarillo, TX. The school is extremely diverse, which is a good thing. The more different types of people there are, the better my experience is in that certain school. I have several friends of different races, ethic, culture, etc. I do not judge anyone, and neither does the school. Diversity is the key in success, and overall togetherness. Here in Amarillo Independent School District, everyone is social, and we get along pretty well. This is the reason I rated this district with five stars.
