Laredo Independent School District Reviews

I didnt like this district because I saw major differences being from another district in San Antonio. The major difference is the money part and now having books for each student like I did I San Antonio. The books in Laredo were in poor condition and staff didn’t seem to care. The other difference is the teachers and staff not communicating and connected with the student in Laredo. They didn’t seem to bother or seem interested in what they were teaching. In one class a teacher was being more like a friend then a teacher and said she “gets paid to only babysit and sit all day, it’s the easiest thing”. She never gave us work only in the beginning on the semester then slowly just made us do nothing. I would like to learn and able to do something than waste my time. The principal and staff were really rude and didnt seem like they knew what they were doing.

Overall my experience with Laredo United Independent School District was vey positive, the schools were all very clean and well staffed. I would only like to see a change in the cafeteria menu, I believe that it is better for students to eat foods that might be just a little bit less healthy than for them not to eat at all during school. This is how it was when was a student for this district, some of the students would not eat because of the poor taste in the food, myself included.
Being a part of this district was honestly a blessing. It complied with students who don't have enough money to buy their own books, their own lunch, and their own classes. We know how other districts both private and public would be challenge when it came to money. We were able to think with a full stomach while studying with free books that were reused by past students in that same district and grade level. It was an experience that made me feel thankful and grateful.
