I have attended the Joshua Independent School District since kindergarten. This May I will graduate as a 13 year senior. Since I've attended Joshua, I have learned countless lessons that are necessary for the real world. The teachers are not only great resources for our studies, but they are also fantastic mentors that are willing to guide us through situations. However, one thing that I would change is the school spirit. But that does not come with the school, it comes from the students that attend it. Overall, Joshua Independent School District is fantastic.
I have been lucky enough to have been apart of the Joshua Independent School District K-12. This school district definitely lives up to their motto of being a 'highly acclaimed model of educational excellence'. This school district strives for greatness, and they certainly achieve that goal. I have had the privilege of being a student council officer during my 4 years at Joshua High School. By being part of this organization I have spent much time at each campus in our district. Each school works hard at helping each and every student with whatever they need, and our districts test scores have surely showed the hard work put into every school year. Joshua is a small town and no matter what school you go to everyone feels welcome. I can honestly say I would not trade my years at JISD for anything. One day I hope to come back and possibly teach in this amazing district.
