Fort Worth Independent School District Reviews

Being a student in FWISD my entire childhood, I have to say that all my learning environments were regularly positive. Teachers, staff, administrators, and counselors were always caring and engaged in ALL students.
Schools I attended such as, South Hi Mount Elementary and Trimble Tech daily pushed the importance of preparing for college and after high school careers. I can proudly say Principal Ramos at Trimble Tech is one of the most involved administrators I have ever encountered. From going to all sports practices after school, to walking around checking in on teachers and students, daily announcements, and always making sure students are doing well. I have enjoyed my time in FWISD!

My experience at fort worth ISD has always been great! Overall through out my elementary and high school career i've always had such a great relationship with my teachers. The district does all they can to find hard working, passionate teachers. From my own experience volunteering or participating in the FWISD events they truly put their heart into everything they do for us the students. They set a family safe environment that honestly not many can say have.
I have been a student within Fort Worth Independent School District since kindergarten. I am now a sophomore who has been given the best opportunities to complete high school with an associates degree. With the support of administrators, educators, counselors, and other staff, I will be college ready upon graduation. Being a student of STEM and the ECHS program, I will be well prepared for the competitive workforce environment in which I tend to become a part of upon graduating college! Thank you FWISD!
