North East Independent School District Reviews

I am a junior . I moved to America 4 months ago . I find many differences on students, teachers, educational system and outdoor activities. At the first day of school, I was overwhelmed that the order of each students follow the school rules although there are over one thousands students studying here. Our school rules are prudish but these don't make us nervous. Fortunately, I met lots of nice friends who are always willing to help me get used to be at school. Because I started at school in December ( last semester 1), I got a lot of difficuties about knowlegdes and grades. My teachers encouraged me , smoothed all the stress and taught all the information i missed. I am actually appreciate about this. I never feel worried about teachers here although i used to be affraid of teachers in my country. Outdoor activies always give chances for students to join after school.

The high school curriculum I learned from in did not prepare me properly to enroll in college courses. When I moved from upstate New York, I was required to take advanced level courses in junior high. When I arrived in San Antonio and enrolled in high school, I was told that the district couldn't accept my course credits from junior high and I had to retake three math classes that I received a letter grade of A from junior high. I was only able to take one class that was partially beneficial to my academic education my fourth year of high school. I was behind in math when I first attended high school. I wish the high school I had attended offered college readiness courses. Had I had the opportunity available to take a class to help prepare me for college level courses, time management, and learn healthy academic habits, I believe I wouldn't have struggled so much in the first year of attending college.
At my school, Robert E. Lee HS, school spirit and identity within such a large district was fantastic. However, being at such a large school, (more than 3,000 students), I did sometimes feel stifled by the bureaucratic chains of command and strict policy, which made it difficult to pursue creative methods to accomplish the same thing: a positive student experience. My junior year, as I prepared to study abroad with Rotary International, I was warned and discouraged by staff to consider the inconvenience, rather than relish in the opportunity to learn a new language and culture. I believe that my school was understaffed and disproportionately under-funded, rendering this campus unequipped to handle, much less, provide guidance for so many students.
