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!

The DSISD is a great place that promotes the variety and flexibility in education and serves as a way to connect with the world and to plan for the future. With many AP programs and many opportunities to excel and exceed the average American, DSISD is a great place to improve oneself and to stand out to colleges amongst the crowd. Of course, no place is perfect and anyone always can improve and DSISD is no different. Some aspects of DSISD that can be improved is the awareness of drunk driving and the cons of vaping. The safety of the youth is a high priority as the youth is our future and promoting good health is an excellent way to do that. A class that teaches how to use First-Aid Kits, how to use fire extinguishers, and how to help in life is a good way to achieve this.
I moved to Dripping Springs when I was in 7th grade. I found that Texans were more hospitable than Northerners and they were all very friendly and inviting when I arrived to my new school. However, although Dripping Springs ISD was rated highly when I was attending, I felt like I was not learning very much. It seemed as though teachers did not care about their students.
