Leander Independent School District Reviews

Leander Independent School district has a fantastic community! I'm in the band program at one of the high schools, and at every competition or festival for marching band, the band parents and other bands are always cheering each other on. The level of Fine Arts in general (dance, theater, art, music) in this district is exceptionally high.

I've also had a great success in my AP classes. The teachers the district has hired are very qualified at their jobs and have taught me many skills I have applied to everything I do. I feel very prepared to take on life following high school because of all the stories I've heard.

Leander Independent School District is a great community that has established great schools. The academic layout is made easy for kids of every intelligence level to acheive sucess. If children are far more advanced there are lots of avenues that allow the student to engage in other studies. The facilities are great, often times referred to as the best in the austin area. Every level of school, whether it be elementary, middle, or high school has felt safe. LISD provides top tier teachers: the type that are established financially and are actaully looking for you to learn, not just for a paycheck. They are invested and want to see the students succeed. Lastly, the sports scene is very competitive. We make a run at state every year in atleast one sport.
Moving from Connecticut into a much bigger state, I had never felt more comfortable walking into a school on the first day of school. Equipped with administration and teaching staff that cares endlessly about the kids and not only their education, but their development throughout their childhood years. Though it has been 10 years since I moved across the country, I didn't know what to expect. Through all three schools within Leander ISD, I was always amazed by the amount of work and effort the teachers put into their daily teaching and plans for the entire year. Leander ISD provided endless academic opportunities for students. Programs such as On-Campus ACC courses, AP courses, and a multitude of extra-curricular activities for students to learn and grow from. Leander ISD prepares students to excel beyond the classroom. Providing them with the resources and tools to better themselves and their family with a solid foundation.
