La Grange Independent School District Reviews
La Grange High School is like any other small-town high school. It is very invested in sports, and when it comes to academics, we are the best compared to the surrounding small-town high schools. Each graduating class has between 130-160 kids, at least 75% go on to college, and the others go straight into the working force. The academic side is not the only thing La Grange has to offer, while our sports teams may not win state every year; each group becomes a family throughout the season. Also, our music program excels even more, each year. The band directors during the fall, marching season, become the band students' parents and take care of us. Then during the spring concert season, the directors push us to become not only better musicians but also better people. The coaches do their best on the field, and the teachers do everything in their power to see the students pass and graduate.
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.
