The Austin Independent School district was very welcoming and safe! I made and met such a great diversity of people which later became my very good friends. I enjoyed attending school and learning as most of my teachers were helpful and insightful, many of which I also became very close to! There was a variety of extra curricular activities available to keep students engaged. I had a great experience!

Overall, I think AISD is great! I like the opportunities in high school to specialize in Art, Science & Math, IB, and Political Science. They hire progressive teachers. I wish they would test kids for LD before 3rd grade if they are showing signs of LD. They also need more funding for upkeep of schools but overall, I have been very happy.
My experience with AISD has been pretty great. However, I have noticed how some authority figures working at the schools, specifically James Bowie, limit the cultural styles of certain races. They have made people take off durag's, made them remove chains, gave them detention for wearing their pants a bit lower than normal, and making fun of how certain words are being pronounced by a specific race. On a positive note, the teachers and the college and career adviser are very helpful and kind. They always make sure that you are not mentally overwhelmed and help you with any assignments you may need extra help on.
