Leander ISD has strived to build from the roots up. This has allowed the values and traditions of this community to continue while continuing to grow to meet student needs. Moving into the LISD attendance area was an easy decision as a parent and educator. I wanted my son to go to an LISD school and I wanted to work for this amazing district. From the board, LISD Leadership to even the custodian they each care about the individual student. Here at LISD, Every Child Matters!

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.
As a student, LISD has been a pretty great district, especially as a member of the band world. The district is always willing to support the fine arts, including giving grants for private lessons and instruments. Being in the district is also great because of it's academic competitiveness. As I apply to college, I'm thankful our schools offer so many AP courses, and classes geared towards actual careers. While the switching of when the school year started during my junior was very inconvenient, overall, LISD has been an awesome district to be apart of.
