College Station Independent School District Reviews

As a student of the oldest of the three high schools in College Station Independent School District, it is disheartening to witness the success of the newer schools while mine lacks their resources. Yet, even with the disadvantages of an older school, higher-level academics continue to thrive. Even so, I would hope that the attention to higher-level academics at my school would shift to other courses and activities. Consider the arts. The orchestra's instruments annually need repair due to the summer heat when the district ignores the pleas to keep the air conditioning running in the fine arts wing. The choir lacks a second director for their large and ever-growing program. The band lags behind the newer high school in the district as their program has switched between three different head directors in four years. The College Station Independent School District is so far successful enough to get by, but it is in need of more reform than it knows.

This district does an excellent job providing equipment and resources to programs and/or for students to be able to experience a variety of career and learning opportunities. However, the district only decides to allow these opportunities to happen if it's convenient and easy to introduce and install within the needed area or school. This has caused tension to rise between schools because teachers and parents have spoken their concerns about the obvious lack of fair distribution of district money. Also, it brings attention to the lack of concern and ambition given towards helping improve the Special Ed programs throughout all the school in the district. If the situation is too complex and needs extreme repair, the district seems to sweep it under the rug.
College Station Independent School District is an overall very good school district. From my experience, this district has relatively higher standards than the rest of the schools in Texas because A&M University is located there and is focused on making sure their students succeed. There is a lot of school spirit and competition between the two sides of town as, starting from intermediate school(5th grade-6th grade) the students of College Station are split into two sides. There is the purple side where Cypress Grove Intermediate School, College Station Middle School(CSMS) and College Station High School(CSHS) reside and the maroon side where Oakwood Intermediate School, A&M Consolidated Middle School(AMCMS) and A&M Consolidated High School(AMCHS) are. The maroon side is also collectively known as AMC. However, his friendly rivalry may not last for very long, there is a new middle and high school being built. The high school will be fine arts focused as opposed to academically based.
