Lancaster Independent School District Reviews

When evaluating the quality of public school districts, I personally look at how students with limitations are treated. Those limitations could be academic, linguistic, socioeconomic or anything else commonly seen as detrimental to student success in the class room. This is where Lancaster ISD stands out. Being at-risk doesn’t automatically equal a problem child, or potential failure in Lancaster as opposed to other districts where this segment of the student body are often singled out or neglected in favor of the larger population. The district has fostered an environment where parents and students who may need additional assistance aren’t intimidated or afraid to do so. The results of these actions are shown in many ways. Parents are much more involved across the board, attendance rates have climbed, there are far fewer disciplinary actions than in years past, and the graduation rate is on par with those of larger, wealthier school districts in the Dallas area.

Overall, the district is doing very well. Resources have been allocated to areas that benefit students the most such as additional courses, college prep, special education, and pre-kindergarten education. The district's achievements have been recognized by private and corporate donors who have donated resources to enhance various academic programs. In my neighborhood, we have had parents pull their kids out of charter or private schools to attend LISD schools. Enrollment has continued to increase and LISD is one of the fastest-growing districts in the area.
My experience with Lancaster Independent School District is spectacular because of the work ethics for the students . The motto we go by is "Lancaster is the best in the southwest" which is a proven facts because of our academics and learning opportunity's we have , for instance the duel credit program is basically taking college courses for free! Our talents vary from the art program to the cosmetology to early college to culinary , and more. I highly recommend attending Lancaster because its a guaranteed ratings for success
