I am highly impressed with the Fort Bend Independent School District. The schools facilities are of high standard with qualify teachers which create conducive environment for anyone to learn. The district has a well structured and standard academic calendar that makes it unique for students to excel academically and in preparing us students to a path of choosing a future career. Moving to the school district was very easy for me with the help of the administration that was ready and eager to assist any student towards the path to Excellency. The school district has its students, teachers and administration from various multicultural groups which creates a welcome environment for all irrespective of culture or ethnicity. The instructional materials are of high standard and we have qualified instructors. In Fort Bend school district, information is well disseminated to the parents (student progress report, school activities etc).

Fort Bend ISD is a school district that has been recognized for its excellence displayed through students. The schools have a great variety of courses that allow students to explore and discover their interests. The diversity in schools allows students to explore and experience the cultures and meet people with different point-of-views and opinions. The students are given chances through express themselves through after school activities and clubs outside of school. The district encourages actions known as "Profile Of A Graduate" to encourage leadership, responsibility, teamwork and other skills that ensure success. The teachers are respectable and hardworking. They are also great leaders and try their best to positively influence and inspire students every day. The teachers are easy to talk to and they also offer tutorials to students who need additional support. The atmosphere at the schools is professional and inspiring for students. FBISD allows students to achieve their dreams.
Only recently did I move to FBISD and get zoned to Clements High School. The best thing about FBISD is the immense cultural diversity among students. Personally, in my few months of attending Clements, I have made friends from Egypt, Thailand, India, China and various other countries that have allowed me to learn more about our world. On the other hand, the teachers, assistant principles, and other staff members are extremely helpful and approachable, making Clements a very comfortable place to be. In addition, the various club events, plays, shows, and sports games that take place in FBISD help keep school spirit and fun alive and help create bonds between students that last a lifetime.
