I've been in the Dripping Springs school district since I was in fifth grade, and overall the experience was great. I did, however, have some teacher complications in middle school. Overall the teachers are proactive. Teachers are willing to help students be successful. The teachers are very good and always provide a friendly classroom environment. There are a lot of class options available such as regular, pre-ap, AP, GT, ACC, and UT On-Ramps. There are various electives available in every subject. The school is diverse and has a lot of tiger spirit!

Dripping Springs has a great school district! The staff are all friendly and helpful across the schools. As someone who has gone through elementary school, middle school, and high school in Dripping Springs, I highly recommend it.
Excellent school district! The teachers have been wonderful in their teaching and caring and supportive during COVID. The district has gone above and beyond to communicate with families and also make efforts to make things special for seniors who are missing out on so much. The sports and arts programs are superb among other things at DSISD.
