Not only is it diverse, but they take several measures to ensuring that all students feel welcome and supported through free/reduced meals, and other programs set in place to help the students graduate. Additionally the superintendent and other board members are continually working to ensure that all complaints from teachers, and parents are being addressed. Through the creation of the group, Student VOICES, high school students are also given a platform to vocalize issues within their individual high school campuses. Lastly, with every nationwide concern, like school shootings, Fort Bend ISD, raises awareness of these issues, and takes certain measures like increasing front door security and hiring more police officers at elementary schools to ensure that the students and their families feel safe. Overall, I would recommend this district to any individual looking to enroll their children in a public school.
Fort Bend I.S.D is probably the most diverse and accepting school district who keeps the students in mind. Especially after the recent school shootings, FBISD has enforced many regulations that guarantee the safety and security of the students. Overall, the students in FBISD are very academically driven and participate in various clubs and sports. There are also numerous programs such as Naviance that help prepare the students as they get closer to college decisions and applications. The parent involvement is very high which is one of the reasons FBISD is growing in popularity. There is absolutely no acceptance to bullying creating a safe environment for all the students and faculty. Overall, FBISD has had a positive influence on both the students and teachers.
