Overall, my experience at Pearland Independent School District as been very good. My education was good quality, however there were some teachers that I have wondered about how they were allowed to teach in the first place. The administration was average; some days they were straight to the point and effective and other days, they were not. There were some situations that could've been better handled, but overall the district has been fine.
Pearlandisd teachers tend to care very much about students and education. There are various teachers within the district that will touch your heart, but like any other school district there are things that need tweaking. Attendance as well as discipline policies are very strict leaving certain children in tough spots trying to make up for one mistake.
