Kaufman Independent School District Reviews

I had a great time during my years at Kaufman ISD! The teachers were willing to help and prepared me for college. Principals stood by our side and were extremely helpful with anything, and our lovely superintendent supported each and every student who walked through those doors. I've never heard about school district whose staff cares as much about their children as Kaufman ISD does!

The school is very good for a small town. Extracurricular activities have a phenomenal reputation, and the school is very supportive of all activities; ranging from UIL Academics, to band to sports. No one activity is favored over the other, which is very amazing, because you feel your importance. The teachers are good, some take their job very seriously and teach you so much. While others will do the bare minimum. The food isn't the best, but it's edible and they have snack lines. The new Kaufman High School will be finished December of 2017. But from what is finished now it is so beautiful. Overall, Kaufman is a great district.
Through my years of going through the KISD learning program, I noticed a trend of academic laziness both by students and teachers. There was no drive by the teachers to really make an impact on the student body. It was just about making deadlines and getting students to pass knowing just enough.
That was the case for many semesters until my senior year, where I had the two most influential teachers both academically and inspirationally. They deviated from the lesson plan if they deemed it necessary to get across the lesson at hand. It was clear they had the student's best interest in mind as they even went as far to give life advice every other Monday in class, nothing to in detail but just a few lines from text or sharing a few personal experiences. It was these teachers that made the KISD program a bittersweet one to leave. Overall I enjoyed my experience in Kaufman High School.
