Here in Arlington, our independent school district strives to give the best that they can. Unlike other districts, we are provided Chromebooks at school to improve our learning through technological formats. Not only that, but AISD provides a safe atmosphere in schools because of their intentional choice of teachers. I've been in the district since the 1st grade and throughout my years here, I've had the best and most prepared teachers, especially in math and science. I've always felt that I was college-bound because of the extensive courses and resources that AISD provides their schools. Every school is full of a competitive academic culture, however, students still support each other. There's always an inclusive club that everyone can become apart of, and at every extracurricular activity, a mob of parents is there to support the students. Every school thrives with an advanced music and arts program and athletic department too, ensuring the nurture of our special talents.

The schools are filled with great teachers who value teaching; there are, of course, the handful of teachers that don't care. For the most part, teachers highly encourage their students to go above and beyond, and the advanced courses are rigorous. The district has many schools that are competing on the regional, state, and national levels for sports and academics.

The district however values there sports team more than academic clubs and activity. AISD and the individual schools would spend more money on there sports teams, good or not, than on there promising students who excel academically. A lot of the money spent by AISD isn't going to the quality of teaching, it is going to renovation and creation of new schools. Like most school districts, this district involves politics when deciding on there agenda and not always the students.
I enjoyed my time in the Arlington Independent School District. I believe the atmosphere was diverse between both students and teachers. All sports were well equipped with all the needs necessary. They focused on the STEM program and bettered many of those programs as well. However, there could be some improvements. I think they should encourage more college readiness. I believe counselors should be more hands on when helping and guiding students wanting to further their education. I believe developing a better relationship with the students would encourage more students to pursue higher education. With these improvements I believe AISD would benefit tremendously.
