La Grange Independent School District Reviews

La Grange Independent School District is definitely a school that stands out. Even after a terrible sport season, this school will continue to show their pride in their colors and teammates regardless of the score. The teachers at La Grange get to know each student on a respectable personal level, taking note on how some students need different learning methods than other students. No one is left out. If I were to change one thing about this school district, it would be to raise awareness to kids who are behind in credits, because our methods of catching up are incredibly tedious, and students may need extra guidance in this area.

LGISD is made of small schools in a small community, so there is no social hierarchy between upperclassmen and lowerclassmen, which is nice. LGISD has room for improvement in every other way. Teachers care little about teaching in general & test AP classes over movies & let them sit on their phones 1/2 the class period. The HS is focused on sports and care little about academics, building million dollar football stadiums, but leave every other department with a dearth of resources or in non-existence (theatre). LGISD's biggest flaw is in their inability to help students who need it most. Anyone who need academic assistance, such as special needs students or those who aren't academically inclined, are left in the dust with nearly no one to help them, either failing classes or having teachers pass them despite learning nothing, because teachers don't care if they learn, as long as these students can be passed off to be someone else's problem, depriving them of education.
There are many things that I am thankful for including where I went to high school. One thing that I love about La Grange is how small it is. I like knowing almost everyone I walk past in my school hallways. I also love how when our city was suffering great losses from Hurricane Harvey, lots of the kids and teachers were out there helping everyone. This shows that teachers here aren’t just caring at school but also outside of school. Honestly, my experience as a La Grange leopard was pretty great. Teachers here that will stay extra hours, without complaining, to help me understand their subject. Most importantly, memories that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Even though my time as a leopard is almost up, I will always be a one at heart. I wouldn’t change a thing about this school because if I would, it would change something about me too. I’ve been blessed to have gone to La Grange since I was in kindergarten, and I will miss it with all my heart.
