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.

I have been in attendance of Little Elm Independent School District since my third grade year. Overall, I would say that the experience was not too bad. They have expectations set for us as a district and even though some years students would fail to meet the expectations, the school district has made sure to make adjustments so that we could do better going forward. The district has made several improvements in our technology usage to ensure that we have all of the materials needed to become successful. In addition, the district is working on construction two new middle schools to increase the diversity of students in the LEISD district. To conclude, I would say that my overall experience at LEISD was pretty good. I have been given many opportunities through the district to be successful all while remaining in a safe environment.
I like how Little Elm is always encouraging students to participate in a wide variety of courses and extracurricular activities, in order to help students with their future careers. It was difficult, however, because the school was more drawn to the athletic and academic department, and often drew funds and support away from areas in fine arts. I participated in all three categories, and it was very common to see multiple principals at sports games or working to engage students in academics. At band competitions, however, the principals announced over the loud system but were never present. It is very discouraging for individuals who work diligently but do not see the same appreciation as others.
