Being a part of DISD was something great. Growing up and having the teachers that they have was a plus. They all made sure that we knew everything that we needed to know for state testing. Academics always came first then activities. No pass no play! When it was time to talk about sports and prep rally’s it was all fun. Cheering our team on, coming up with chants was amazing! It’s so much more to expirence! As now a alum DISD is where you want to be and where your child would like to be.

i have been in DISD my entire years of school. I always have fun in my schools, making friends and memories ! DISD makes school and academic very interesting and consistent. This districts have many opporuntubities for all grade levels within their school! Safety has always been the main key point for all staffs and teachers for their students. Many ways to get scholarships for colleges and many ways to get ready for the real world!
The Dallas Independent School district is overall a great district. I've attended the district for my whole life ever since I started attending school. The teachers and staff are great, they are able to teach the material effectively in a fast and efficient way. The are tons of clubs and activities in the schools including sports. The teachers are able to have resources for struggling students by providing extra tutoring hours, review worksheets, and letting the students correct their work. The parents are given various opportunities to be inolved, by providing meeting and parent teacher conferences. The staff and faculty provide extraordinary safety for the school and students.
