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.

CCISD is an overall good district. I would like to see changes in the way that they handle bullying of students, teachers and etc... I myself have witnessed bullying among students, faculty and parents. For the most part it is handled pretty good, but it could be handled better. No student, staff or parent should feel that they cannot reach out to administrators and trust that they will handle the situation with the utmost confidentiality and professionalism. So many situations end badly and I would hate for any of the schools in our district to be another statistic. We as a community need to figure out what can be done to prevent horrible situations. Other than that our district is great!
I had the average high school experience with being in sports, clubs, pep rallies, and schoolwork. Personally, I was given a good high school experience for a district with 44 different schools. That is quite the number to keep up with. Having that many schools to keep tabs on and still meeting the needs of the thousands of attending students is very impressive. I liked how the community came together for different occasions even though it wasn't about your school. If a team made it to state, that team would have the support of the entire community. That sense of fellowship is what I loved about CCISD. Nothing necessarily needs to change in the district other than the food I suppose. They are working with what they have and cannot be blamed for that. Overall, my experience with the district was satisfactory.
