Pasadena Independent School District gets involved with students as much as they can! They offer opportunities and help out the community as much as they can. When hurricane Harvey hit Pasadena, TX, their was teachers from the PISD district helping out those in need! It's been a wonderful experience being a part of this district and would not change anything!

Pasadena Independent School District is overall a good district. However, there are some aspects that could make it better. Improving safety in the high schools is important, especially with all the things going on. Also the academics are so-so. Teachers need to guide their students and worry more about children learning rather than making sure they have enough grades in the gradebook. The district itself is friendly especially during games and other events aside from obvious rivalry amongst high school. Nonetheless, Pasadena is where its at!
What I like about Pasadena Independent High School is that the education is very good, there are many fun activities to be involved in, and everyone is treated kindly.
The education is very good because of the teachers. They always help and explain for better understanding of the subject. They never say no to any questions but instead are very helpful.
Some fun activities to be involved in include the football games, the dances, and the bonfire. In these activities everyone gets to interact with each other and demonstrate our school pride while at the same time having fun.
From my experiences everyone is treated kindly. In sports everyone supports and pushes each other to get better. For example in swim my teammates are always there to help me. There is also great sportsmanship shown when in races we wait for everyone to finish and we congratulate the other team weather they win or lose.
Overall I have really been enjoying part of the Pasadena Independent School District.
