The KISD School district is very interesting. Recently It has become more AVID and STEM-based, implementing various activities over the 2019-2020 school year. I must be honest and say I am disappointed about Killeen High School not being an IB school anymore, therefore it will be standard and some may even say a below-average school, affecting the school district as a whole!

i've had a very good experience at Killeen ISD! I've been apart of it my whole life from kindergarten to being a senior this year. It's been very enjoyable for me. I've met some great friends and really good teachers. I feel like all of the schools are very diverse and make you feel like your part of a family. There's nothing super special about KISD, but you can tell that most of the staff try their best to make it an enjoyable experience for you.
Although Killeen ISD is an older school district, it doesn't lack in many areas when it comes to providing their students a proper education. However, there are some areas I believe can easily be improved upon. The two biggest lacking areas are college readiness and the music and art department. As far as college readiness goes, there is only 1 way to include college readiness into your curriculum which is by taking an AVID class. However, I honestly think that KISD should put more effort into providing student in-class resources to better prepare them for going to college if they choose to do so. As far as the music and art department goes, I believe that there is only 1 school that has an adequate budget set aside and that is Harker Heights high school. Their art department is well funded and they even have a orchestra, which no other school in Killeen ISD has.
