Bland Independent School District Reviews

The teachers at Bland High School are some of the most caring, supportive , and driven educators I have ever known. Bland high school is small but with class sizes being small teachers get a chance to work with everyone during the class period. Blands faculty is always welcoming and joyful it’s hard not to have a good day!

This is my last year and been going for 6 years. Compared to all the other 4 schools I have been to, I never met people and teachers who care so much. There is never any problems or conflicts, the school has a close bond to families of all kinds. And the staff are respectful about beliefs and morals.
Bland ISD is very good at engaging and getting to know their students. The teachers show enthusiasm about their subject and teach it well. I would love to see some expansion of the school itself because there are more and more students in each grade as the years go on.
