I really like Ector County Independent School District! I am currently on my second year here. I attended Nimitz Middle School last year and this year I am attending Odessa Collegiate Academy. The school is really nice. Everyone gets along fairly well and the teachers care a lot about their students wellbeing. The campus is very clean and organized. It is truly an amazing school district!

Overall Academics are below the state average. TEA rankings are poor. The schools are overcrowded, and the safety of the schools is inadequate. There is a lack of teachers who are overworked and underpaid for the cost of living. The school does put a lot of emphasis on sports and that is not a bad thing, but the focus needs to be on preparing students for careers and college readiness. Schools lack supplies and technology to help students stay focused and interested in learning. Some teachers have whiteboards that are old and outdated, making it hard to read what the agenda is for the day.
My experience with the ECISD system was very different and some times unfortunate for me. Teachers were very caring for their students and made sure they had a good working environment. Although I did have some bad experiences with some principals due to a misunderstanding, they weren't fair all the time with the consequences given to some of the students, like the saying goes "money talks".
