Lake Travis Independent School District Reviews

I consider myself very lucky to attend Lake Travis High School. The campus is spacious, with new facilities and plenty of resources.
When it comes to athletics, we can’t be beat. Literally—our school won the state championship in football last year! LTHS has every sport you can think of, but we also have plenty of clubs to join if athletics isn’t your thing. I’m historian for my Model United Nations club and Editor of our Yearbook Department. The best part about LTHS, though, is the faculty. I’ve had amazing teachers who are very passionate about their jobs and care deeply about their students. I’ve built strong relationships with many of them and talk regularly with ones from previous years. I’m happy that I can honestly say that I’ve never had a teacher that I didn’t like at LTHS. The only downside about my school would be the lack of diversity at my school and I definitely hope that changes soon. Otherwise, LTHS is a great school and I highly recommend it!

I have been in LTISD all my life. I really like it because most of the people are friendly and helpful, the teachers are all very passionate about their jobs, and the administration has been amazing even through the transitioning period of principals, from Brents to Butler. Mr. Butler is also a great principal, he is great with the kids, finding the perfect balance between friend and authority figure. I do feel that Lake Travis however overdoes the sports programs. Football mostly gets the funding, while the academic department still uses 20 year old textbooks. I personally like having a textbook in front of my face while doing work, and I can say that at 3 of my four core classes do not have one. This isn't as big of deal to some people, but a visual learner myself, a textbook is a necessity.
I was able to develop great relationships with teachers and friends at Lake Travis High School. I was able to learn and accomplish my goal of getting into a highly competitive university based on my education at Lake Travis High School. There is a huge emphasis on sports. Students, especially males, are shown favoritism and allowed to break rules to the point I was tempted to file a Title IX complaint against Lake Travis High School. I got what I needed to succeed from LTHS to succeed in college, but there is a lot of improvement needed to at the administrative level for this school.
