My experience with Fort Bend Independent School District has been very pleasant. I love the diversity on all of the campuses and how professional and helpful the staff is. Also, I like how Fort Bend takes pride in their district. If I had to change one thing it would probably be more college course opportunities for the high school students. College is very expensive and this will alleviate some of the expenses. I would also like to see courses that teaches students how to manage their money properly. Overall Fort Bend Independent is a great district to be a part of!
