Aransas County Independent School District Reviews

There is a lot of talent in ACISD, and many great teachers, but they are not paid well enough, and often move to other nearby districts. Our school has been strapped for funding and has cut programs including several AP classes to make ends meet. Funding for many extracurriculars has also decreased in recent years. A few school facilities like the library and dual credit room have been refurbished well and improved, but for the most part the school had declined in the rigor of classes and is unable to hold on to good teachers. Last year, to increase attendance, parent notes were no longer allowed to excuse absences. Also, instead of paying two nurses, the school now just has one who spends half the day at the middle school and half at the high school (Is that even legal?). This means that sick students cannot stay home without seeing a doctor, and if they go to school they have to wait for hours to see a nurse. Attendance rose, but so did the number of sick kids at school.

The majority of teachers in the Aransas County Independent School District have a passion for teaching their subject, which creates positive environments for education and growth. However, as in most school districts, if a student defends themself from a bully attacking them, disciplinary actions are taken against them both. The counseling system brings an "anonymous" reporter of a bully and their bully into the same room and request that they "hug it out". Overall a very good school district other than the grievances listed with the counseling system.
I’m entering my senior year at Rockport-Fulton High school, and I’ve been in the district all my life. My high school experience hasn’t been horrible, nor has it been amazing. Most of the staff is friendly, but there’s a few teachers that don’t put in enough effort for the students. Teachers not having enough time for one on one help with me has affected my grades, as well as Hurricane Harvey destroying my school in 2017. I do think my school deserves the overall rating I gave it despite other aspects being subpar, because after this natural disaster, the feeling of being united was overwhelming in the district. It’s brought all of the staff closer to the students, and we all have a mutual understanding when someone is having a bad day because so many of us are still affected by it.
