Little Elm ISD has impressed us with the caliber of progressive educators and curriculum since our children started their school lives there. From its first day, Prestwick STEM Academy (K-8) introduced the open classroom plan and hands-on learning style in which our kids thrived, and led the district in STEM/STEAM education that is taking over all the district campuses. LEISD continues to provide rich learning opportunities through smart hiring of all their staff, from administrators to teachers to support staff. The also continue to add curriculum that prepares students for real-world experiences. We feel fortunate that our kids have been students there.

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.
My experience with Little Elm Independent School District has been nothing short of fun memories in this district with friends, family and teachers, however this doesn't mean it was perfect. Some of the best teachers I've met were in this district, but not all of them were the best. This school by far has the strongest school spirit every time the school held a pep rally for events such as a football game. The school recently was remodeled during a previous summer that now has a very modern and smooth look. Safety was average but there is always room for improvements, such as a door ,that is supposedly locked, can still be opened by force if applied. The food in the school overall gotten worse as each year passed on when I was a student. What I would change in this school is increase security for safety measures due to fights sometimes breaking out, improve on academics, teachers, better food, and more options for sports.
