My experience with the Irving Independent School District has been nothing short of amazing .I couldn’t be more thankful for all my administrators,counselors,coaches.Sophomore year I joined my high school drill team Cardettes and senior year became captain .The core values and lessons that derive from being on the team are tremendous, they have helped me to become a leader in all aspects of my life.The MacArthur high school AVID program taught to set an example by using traits such as perseverance,dedication, discipline, integrity, honesty, modesty and teamwork. As well as learning how to communicate effectively while remaining confident, enthusiastic and optimistic . Overall my experience has made me more focused on working hard to reach my potential and has made me a tougher competitor. I believe my past mistakes and successes have made me a more conscientious, driven, focused, and compassionate person.

The Irving Independent School district gave me the opportunity to take college courses through dual enrollment. This gave me a head start in college and prepared me with the responsibility that was required with taking advanced courses. Additionally, as an individual in a low income family, by taking those courses I am saving money that I will not have to spend by taking them in college. However, I wish the administration in our district could be improved upon. Each year we have brand new administration in our school in order to attempt to improve our environment, but in my opinion it keeps getting less effective. The administrators do not focus on significant issues, such as raising money for each class, creating a safer learning environment, or improving the behavior of students that create a disruptive learning environment.
I attended 2/3 of the highschools in Irving, TX. While it had its good moments it also had cons. A couple good things about Irvingisd was their involvement in Students lives. Administrators were very affirmative while also forming bonds with students. They made sure to reward students by having multiple types of activities for them throughout the school year. A few things I wish could change were the leniency on students. Many students including myself felt like we gave 110% at all times while people who didn’t care as much were given the same treatment (as in grades and rewards), sometimes even better. So the main point is I would like IrvingIsd to change the differentiation between how they treat well behaved versus misbehaved students.
