Laredo Independent School District Reviews

The things that I like about this district is the diversity of expression one can have. There not much restrictions when it comes to they type of clothing that we can wear, and that makes it more enjoyable and comfortable to be in when in a place that you can spend almost a whole day in. The arts in the district are one of the best that I’ve seen they have teachers that are actually passionate of their jobs and they want to help their students to become someone grater than themselves and that is something that should be greatly appreciated. Although, like anything in life, it is not perfect. There are also me some staff that don’t quite like what they do. I’ve been in multiple LISD establishments, and there’s always some people that, just don’t enjoy what the do, and maybe they know this but no one is doing anything to change this. LISD is almost like any other district, it’s just it’s people that makes it stand out and makes it so special for many.

I really liked the diverse set of personalities I saw through different schools. I liked the opportunities that LISD provided its students. I believe that some teachers made it difficult for students to learn. Teachers need to learn the professionalism, and although they were some amazing teachers that impacted my life. There was teachers why intentionally tried to lower my grade to affect my GPA. The level of technology used in UISD and LISD is greatly different. Overall, I am proud of the school I attend and would like to contribute back to my community one day.
I would like to assume every school district is amazing, however LISD is changing lives. With LISD a student could graduate with collage basics done. For example, i myself got my welding certificate as a junior in high school! For that i will forever greatful.
