Corpus Christi Independent School District Reviews

CCISD gave me the best years as a student. I attended many schools of fine arts which really helped develop my mind as a child. I remember everyone being involved and connected, there were always after school events of fundraisers and might I say I was very competitive when it came to those year round candle sells. The diversity was there but I would have appreciated to see a lot more, Corpus is just small and lacks diversity within itself so what can you do? Furthermore, the academics were outstanding and the teachers really do implement themselves into your lives. They allow you to learn at your own pace and never made you feel bad about it. Overall an amazing school district and I can't wait to have my children attend one day!

Over all, my experience with CCISD has been relatively exceptional. The academics are very advanced, as are the facilities and resources that are available to students. However, one thing that I would change would be the administration. Specifically in high school, I feel that the administrator's have other agendas then listening and paying attention to the needs and concerns of the students. I have brought my concerns, which apply to many students in my school, to administrators and have been turned away time and time again. I think this is something that most definitely needs to be reformed!
This school district and the staff included has helped me become such a better, more understanding, smart person! Everyone is so helpful and understanding, they make you feel as if you're family. This district does everything they can for the students like always providing us the books and other resources that we may need. All CCISD staff and administration make sure to cater to us students by always being there and going the extra mile if it's going to help us. If any of the students need help in any kind of way, we know we have such amazing teachers and staff to go to. It's nice knowing that this school district is truly here for us students and want the best for our futures.
