Lake Dallas Independent School District Reviews

I have attended the Lake Dallas Independent School District for all 13 years of my education. I remember every single one of my teachers pf those years, because they all left some kind of impact on me, most of which was positive. One of my favorite qualities integrated into the district if the small town feeling that is undeniable. Everybody knows your family and friends, and siblings pass through the same classrooms and teachers as their older brothers and sisters once did. There is no better feeling than your second grade teacher recognizing you ten years later. As far as changes are concerned, a teacher pay raise would keep many of those great teachers returning to the district. A grand new stadium is being built, and it would help to give a bit of that money back to the teachers. It's sad to leave what I've known for 13 years, but I'm ready to take what Lake Dallas has given me and start my own path in the world.

I've been in LDISD my entire educational career. I've seen dramatic and impressive changes in the school district, such as technology accessibility and increased diversity. Despite this, it is diminished by its slow progression and lack of attention to the student body. At times it feels like priorities aren't on a student's success, but discipline. Money is spent towards golf carts to parade around the student parking lot to make sure no one is leaving rather than contributing to resources to help fund and improve CTE classes, all of which could highly benefit from it. LDHS feels like it lacks opportunity and student involvement. Although they try to promote clubs and events, in my opinion, there's a lack of a wide variety to enhance student participation. One of the reasons I gave Lake Dallas such a rating is the teachers. Some of the teachers I've had have been extremely pleasant and deserve so much more than what they are getting.
I like the small school atmosphere. I would like to see the safety in the building more secure. I believe it needs more school spirit. The administration, staff, and teachers should push students to be successful.
I enjoy being on the student counsel, but wish the administration would allow the "student" counsel to make some decisions based on the student input.
