Little Elm Independent School District Reviews

I loved going to little elm highschool, we were a one highschool town which created a strong culture towards school spirit. Everyone was kind hearted and supportive of one another, which caused bullying to be nonexistent. Every sports team would cheer for each other and bring a huge crowd to all althetic events, also when the playoffs would roll around the send offs at the school would be crazy! The whole school would gather and cheer as which ever sports team was heading out to compete in the states playoffs. In addition to the supportive and great spirited student body, the teachers and faculty were the ones who lead by example. Great teachers and coaches who supported one another and helped groom us into respectable young men and women. The one minor thing I would've liked to be improved was the food in the cafeteria.

The change over the last several years has been amazing. I was on the verge of pulling my kids out of the district when some major changes took place. Just walking into the school, you could feel the difference. The positive energy was just flowing! All the new offerings and certificate programs (we used to call vocational) are simply wonderful. My son is taking full advantage of the welding program and my daughter is working on obtaining a pharmacy tech certification before she graduates. She plans to go to school to be a pharmacist and this certification will allow her to work in the industry while going to college! I love LEISD, and want to thank them so much for what they have done for my kids.
My overall experience in Little Elm ISD was very positive. I was a student in LEISD from Kindergarten through high school, graduating in 2017. I love that the school district has always kept the "One Community, One Pack" mentality, keeping the small town culture. Little Elm ISD is always advancing their Academic programs. They opened a STEM Academy in 2014 and really began to broaden the opportunities for a STEM driven school district across every campus. They have implemented many accelerated academic programs and have really expanded their CTE program. This gives students a better opportunity to challenge themselves and earn a higher GPA. Something I wish the district could change would be the class sizes. Keeping up with the growth in our district is challenging, but I think students would benefit more from the advanced academic programs if the student/teacher ratios were smaller. The district is currently building new schools, so my hope is that the class sizes will get smaller.
