Highland Park Independent School District Reviews

I feel very lucky to have attended Highland Park ISD for almost all of my school years (I moved to HP in 2nd grade). Although the academics are rigorous, students will graduate from Highland Park prepared for the expectations they will face in college. The social life at HP also plays a huge part in the student's lives, but there are countless extracurricular activities offered to ensure each student can find their place. I wouldn't trade my time there for the world!

Both of my children attended HPISD for 12 years and their education was stellar. The school has strong Talented/Gifted and special education programs to meet students where they are and give a differentiated learning experience even in a public school with large classes. Both of my kids had teachers who will have impacted them for the rest of their lives. The community is EXTREMELY supportive of the schools here, and parents are very involved. Arts programs are fantastic and the sports programs compete at the top of the state each year.
My child started attending school in HP in 4th grade. His teacher was inept, to say the least. She told me and the counselor he couldn't read because he didn't want to read out loud in front of the class. He was a new student, didn't know anybody, and he is terrified of public speaking. She would embarrass him in front of the students.I could go on for hours. He did get to switch teachers, which is unprecedented at that school.
MIS was much worse. The teachers did very little and expected the parents to do their job. The other day I was going thru my email and one of the English teachers, who is no longer there, emailed me over 50 times. She was so hard on my son, he couldn't concentrate.They overreact instead of teaching. I think it's mostly the ones who are about to be or are tenured.The high school is amazing. The counselors seem to genuinely care and want to make sure the student is comfortable in all aspects so they are able to teach their potential.
