International Leadership of Texas, K-8 and 9-12 campuses, are excellent schools to attend to as students have the ability to be garnered in learning three different languages: Chinese, Spanish, and English. Throughout their school experience they are constantly learning these languages as many of the teachers speak multiple languages. Additionally, many of the classes are more advanced then an average public school’s curriculum courses. Therefore, students who are sent to International Leadership of Texas are challenged to their fullest potential. Moreover, students learn how to become a leader, as this is a big part of the school’s motto, along with putting others before yourself. Overall, this is the perfect school for individuals who are willing to push themselves!

This school was awful. They tried to go for a “healthy lunch” appeal, but it just made the food inedible. The Chinese was so varied, you were lucky if you learned anything. The only year I had a good teacher was in 7th grade. They’ll pass you up a grade just because they want to keep their looks up. I did have some great teachers, but it didn’t make up for everything else. They have a nice facade, but once you actually become a student it loses all credibility. They couldn’t care less if you pass or fail, but God forbid you break dress code. Wrong sock color? Shoes have a white logo? Is it 60 degrees in the classroom because teachers can’t touch the conditioning so you decide to wear a jacket that happens to have a purple zipper? Lunch detention. I hated every year I went here, and if you ask almost any other student they will tell you the same story. It gets 2 stars because while everything else is awful, I had some amazing teachers. Blame administration.
I have been a part of ILT for a little over 6 years now, I started in their k-8 program in the 7th grade and now a senior at one of their High schools. The main appeal about this school was the fact that they would be teaching its students three languages. Besides that, however, I would argue that ILT is just like any other high school, despite how pretentious they make themselves seem. The teachers and the general academics at the school are undoubtedly the best I've come across, but the school lacks in other areas. Since ILT is relatively new, they are limited in the amount of resources they have, which makes the fine arts and sports department suffer. I am a trombone player in the band at my high school and we struggle to find new music that not only fits a reasonable price but also fits our lack of instrumentation, such as timpani's, chimes, bass trombone, etc. The general experience at the school could be summed up to be OK, which isn't great but again could definitely be better.
