Killeen Independent School District Reviews

I was a student with Killeen Independent School District from pre-K up until Senior year. This district is great for challenging students to succeed, by offering numerous programs such as STEM and International Baccalaureate. I would like to see more programs that help students prepare for college at the high school level. I would also liked to see the district set some kind of requirement for all students in high school to list their career goals. By this action, I feel students will have a better mind set, as they will work hard in high school to attend college to achieve their career goals. Overall, great district!

I went to a small private school in the Killeen Independant School Distract for all of my high school years. Before that, I went through elementary and middle school in the KISF system. The teachers and staff seemed very uninterested in their student’s personal success for the most part. However, there are still teachers scattered throughout the city that still have a personal connection to their job, and really want to be there. Students, however, are increasingly disrespectful of staff. Due to lack of parent accountability, teachers can hardly be blamed for this.
I've been attending the KISD school district for most of my life. There are an immense amount of good thing I throughly enjoyed about this district and also a few things I didn't enjoy so much. First of all most of the teachers are excellent in our district. The amount of love and care they give us is something I will forever be grateful for as it has truly benefitted me. Although they are teachers they care more than just about your grades and scores, they actually care about your well being whether you re actually okay or not and they will help you if you are not. One thing our district has an profound concern about is dress code. I understand the purpose of dress code but it comes to a point were we aren't allowed to express ourselves, we aren't allowed to be ourselves and we are put into this little box of what we can and cannot wear which after a while just makes us want to rebel a lot. Overall though I really did like my school district, it's not perfect but what district is?
