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 am a freshman at Texas Tech University. I love this school district overall. Great academics, people, clubs, and restaurants!
My experience with the Lubbock Independent School District has been absolutely wonderful. I have been a part of the district from elementary through high school and i have never had a problem with the system. The provide amazing teacher with excellent courses that prepare you for the real world. However the teachers at my schools have not always been just teachers, they have been friends to their students. They genuinely care about each and every one of their students and love watching them succeed. They may be tough but its only because they care.
