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.
Leander ISD is not a very multi-cultural environment. We have had several issues with teachers and substitute teachers who have shown racism. As a parents, I have had to constantly prove that my children were being targeted and or treated differently than other Caucasian children- mind you, I am Caucasian myself and my children are bi-racial. I moved to Leander ISD because I thought they would receive a higher standard of education, however, that has not been the case overall. There have been 4 exceptional staff members that we have been blessed with, however 4 out of 20+, is not a good rate.
