Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District Reviews

When I attended HCISD in my primary education I always found that the school system there was actually pretty enjoyable. While we didn't always have the newest, cutting-edge resources at our disposal such as computer monitors or tablets, the teachers were always willing to put their best foot forward in helping their students. No teacher was ever perfect, but the dedication they showed us both in the classroom and out on the field reminded me of just how much I enjoyed their teaching and support. The various resources found in their libraries' will always be my most cherished memory as they kept my young, imaginative mind occupied. Whether it was their vast selection of books of entertainment or the resourceful desktops that drew us to the Internet, there was always a way to be whisked away to another world inside of those rooms!

Great teachers! We have kids at 4 different HCISD schools. Each have their strengths and communication is welcome if parents engage. Lots of opportunities for different electives, clubs, and sports.
HCISD truly creates a learning environment. From elementary through high school, the schools drill much knowledge into a student. Through field trips to projects and school events, HCISD creates a creative and fun way to teach young minds the skills they need to further their education in college. One alteration they can make is with their nutrition choices. Most of the food served in this school district is not the best. Changing some of the food choices to a fresher variety would be better. Overall this school district is a great choice for young mind to explore science, language arts, mathematics, geography, social studies, and even music!
