My overall experience with Grand Prairie Independent School District was a fun and interesting time. I have made lifelong friends, memories, and experiences. This will always be my home and I love the diverse culture that is held in this community. I enjoy learning more our excellent administration, they are very good at their job because of the potential they see in their students. Coming from this community has taught many valuable life lessons such as being a leader, becoming people oriented, and preparing myself for college and my future career.

I am a former student of the Grand Prairie Independent School District, I attended schools there for k-12. My experience was for the most part positive, apart from some unjust treatment from some of the administrators from my high school, I would say that all of the faculty in all four of the different schools I attended were amazing. As for resources, they may not completely satisfy all of the students needs, for example when applying to colleges I lacked help from my college and career advisors. This however does not tarnish my overall experience spent at the schools in this district. I believe it is a great district, and I hope it receives the recognition it deserves.
Being able to attend to GPISD has been an amazing experience as I had many opportunities to choose form and as well received support from all the staff here. And, the teachers are amazing being able to help, support, and even touch students hearts. The teachers at GPISD are just very supportive with their students. I even had the opportunity to be able to be part of Early College High School and earn college and hopefully to graduate with my Associates Degree. They are very supportive and open many doors for all of their students future and provide many things to help out every single student. It has been an honor and exciting experience to be a student here at GPISD.
