If you are looking for an amazing student centered and family oriented school district, this is the district you want to be in! I have lived for 10 years in the area and have seen my child enjoy every single day at school and even Saturdays, they have fun- engaging-family events/ activities! The staff and educators are pleasure to work with and are always willing to help/ assist in many instances. Kudos!

Attending Garlandisd has been an experience that has allowed me to develope skills needed in this world. Gisd may receive a bad reputation from some students due to the fact some of Gisd policies, but in all reality this school districts id one of the best in my opinion. They provide Ipads for students as well most if not all teachers will work to their best ablity to push students to the highest level of excellence. My only conplaint is the school district blocks certain websites which can be beneficial to students, such as scholarship opportunities...Overall Gisd has been the best move for me!
