Lubbock Independent School District Reviews

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.

I like the fact that although the schools within the district are rivals and are competitors, all students motivate and help each other in different school for the success of others. I also like how the school district holds review sessions for all of the high schools in the district, for the bettering of all students for the AP exams no matter the school the student is coming from. I would like to change the amount of influence the students have with their opinions about their school, on the website the parents and teachers take surveys and recommended different things but LISD never asks the students their opinion.
The best parts about LISD were the few career-prep courses offered at a third party campus for all LISD students regardless of which high school within LISD they attended. That is where I took a drafting class and a rocketry class, both of which influenced the internships I was able to get in my first few years of college. The coursework and culture at the main high school campus itself was poor. Resources are scant, students overall do not have academic drive, and teachers are so busy trying to keep the peace and test prep that they aren't able to really challenge the students, even in AP classes.
