I loved how all the schools within Irving ISD communicate with each other. All of the schools within Irving ISD that I know of have great honors classes which students love to take advantage of and a majority of students have great academic success! With useful resources all around campuses students and teachers have the opportunity to go above and beyond what you would normally expect from a normal school district which Is why Irving ISD is overall an amazing school district with great opportunities for everyone.

I started my high school journey at a small public charter school that offers a classical education called Great Hearts. Great Hearts started its first year of high school when I started my freshman year in 2018, because the school had just started I experienced different challenges that most high school students don't get the opportunity to experience. Some of those challenges include inexperienced teacher staff, school event organizing, and lack of funding. I looked at these challenges and awoke the inner leader within me and scheduled a meeting as soon as I could with the headmaster. I carefully presented the headmaster with my solutions to the problems that I found and we worked on the challenges from there. As for teacher staff we decided that the best plan was to watch teachers more strictly with their lesson plans and as for the school event organizing I helped create a student committee and the lack of funding was solved by organizing events with the committee.
I loved being a part of the Irving Independent School District. I attended Townsell Elementary, Sam Houston Middle School, and graduated from MacArthur High School. Through all my years of education I found that there was an abundance of opportunities available that allowed for students from every background to flourish. My senior year, the Dallas County Promise initiative was implemented. This program provided a way for virtually all graduating seniors to attend a Dallas County Community College tuition free, then transfer to an accredited four-year university afterwards. This program is amazing, and has made it possible for so many of my peers to carve a new pathway to success for themselves that was never deemed possible before.
