I've been apart of Lubbock Independent School District since I was kindergarten. I've always felt welcome and wanted here. I feel I've been taught the value of education through amazing teachers from Lubbock ISD. For the majority of my life I wanted to become a teacher because I was intrigued and inspired by my own teachers. I love the atmosphere and opportunities that Lubbock ISD has provided me. Because of the family atmosphere the schools and their feeder schools have created, the district created a program called Ready, Set, Teach! where a junior or senior in high school (with the right qualifications) gets to go to an elementary school of their choice to student teach in a classroom. It's an eyeopening experience to a student to see what a teacher truly goes through everyday. It has been an amazing opportunity for me and I know of many other opportunities similar to my own. Lubbock Independent School District has helped shape me into the woman I am today. Thank you.

Moving into the Lubbock Independent School District freshman year, I was more than prepared to transition from private school to public education. Ever since I expressed my interest in attending LISD my school (Lubbock High) has been more than helpful and encouraging. When I was enrolling into Lubbock High school my counselors were very eager and interested in watching my success in the next four years. As a senior I am very much thankful for the faculty here at LISD and I feel like they have prepared me for the real world after high school. My experience has been overwhelmingly great these past couple years, so I would not change anything about the district.
I feel like the Lubbock Independent School District is overall an okay district, a pretty average district. The people are friendly, administration is amazing, and the educational standards are bar raising. However, with good bad always follows. The district is very hands off. There is little to no communication between the staff and parents. There is very little room for students to branch out and experience new things. The administration tries tremendously to keep students within the city, and to prohibit any desire to attend university outside the city boundaries. It is fairly annoying. And if they do show even the slightest interest in wanting you to branch out, it's not very far at all.
