La Vernia Independent School District Reviews

Before we moved to La Vernia, my son was receiving Dyslexia services and was participating in the Gifted and Talented program. At La Vernia, they offered both of these programs during the same pull-out class period. We were told that we had to choose one program and drop the other. We were disappointed that the school district could not offer both services. We chose the dyslexia program and my son was never able to be in GT again. This changed his perception about himself. He went from being associated with a positive Special Education program to being associated with a negative Special Education program. It was unfortuate that because La Vernia is a small school district, they cannot offer as many programs to its students.

La Vernia is a pretty mediocre school. Some sports programs are really good, while others are lacking. The campus is not considered open, however anyone could easily walk into the school without being questioned. The academics are good in some classes, while others not so much. La Vernia definitely needs to better prepare its students for college.
La Vernia is not a very large city which means that classes are decently sized and students are able to get to know their teachers and each other well. Tutoring programs that the teachers sponsor are helpful, and the teachers are committed to student success.
