Killeen Independent School District Reviews
During my time at Ellison, I had a mostly average experience and would describe my experience as bitter-sweet. The staff and faculty here may not have a cheerful attitude, but they are mostly willing to help. The education is quite rigorous and provides a solid foundation for the skills needed for education beyond high school, but the passing rate of AP classes are poor. Main problems that I had with the school is the conditions of the bathrooms which are deplorable, the food from the cafeteria is unacceptable serving spoiled milk and undercooked food occasionally, and lastly there is many racial clashes and fights that occur within the campus. The bright side of the school includes the availability of extracurricular activities and clubs including the lgbt, and library.
I have had a good experience with the KISD school district, in particular Early College High School. This school is a very good for students who want to go to college and have a smooth transition. The school teaches students college readiness and looks out for their students. They have tutoring built into schedules where students can either go to a teacher for help or work individually or in a study group. Avid is a key class which looks out for students and teaches students about the SAT and how to apply and prepare for college. During student’s Junior year Seniors come around to help students with their college work based on the professors the student has.
I’ve been in the Killeen Independent School District since Pre-K. Growing up I didn’t really realize all the good and bad aspects of this district. Some teachers are nice and caring, some students are friendly and outgoing. And then you have the teachers who don’t care about you succeeding or not, and the students who bully you until you don’t want to be living anymore. This particular school district needs to up its security and lower the harassment that goes on within. Along with starting to hire teachers that actually care about the students education and want them to succeed.
