Dallas Independent School District Reviews
Review Dallas Independent School District
While being a student in the Dallas Independent School District, I only enjoyed my high school experience. I am rating DISD based on my high school expereince only. I attended A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School. This school provided project-based learning to its students. A. Maceo Smith New Tech really prepared me for college with the support of faculty and staff. There should be more school like New Tech!
Honestly, I've had the best teachers throughout my whole elementary and middle school years. I can't wait to graduate on 2020! Some change I would like to see is probably the food, but other than that I think everyone and everything is great. I do have a small complain about teachers who only give students packets, and that don't actually teach. Please have a close eye on teachers most of them act as if they're teaching, but in reality they act only when someone walks into their class to watch them.
I am a senior at Uplift Education North Hills Preparatory School where I have attended since middle school. My overall experience has been empowering. I've been enrolled in the IB program since middle school. The staff and administrators encourage, nurture, and foster an environment to excel. There are many tools that allowed me to push myself to excel. Also the interactions and relationships formed over the past six years with staff, administrators, and peers has made me self confident and strengthened my social skills. There are so many opportunities and venues to express yourself at North Hills that you are set up for success. I personally was able to perform in theater for the last four years which I feel has given me strength in communicating and interpersonal skills as well as life skills that will help in my transition to college. I would recommend North Hills Preparatory in Dallas Independent School District. The institution I attended was truly uplifting.
