Plano Independent School District has an excellent academic program that provides students with challenging curriculum to prepare them for college. They have a Health Sciences Academy that's available to apply for. I want to become a physician and I was accepted to the Health Sciences Academy. The experience is amazing! The curriculum covers the entire human body and we are required to learn all of the bones, muscles, veins, arteries, organs, all aspects of the heart, basically every function of every part of the human anatomy. We get experience with actual doctor and nurses and medical environments. We have our own 8 bed hospital in the school and we have awesome teachers that will work with every student to perform at their highest level.

Plano ISD is a great school district. The schools are very academically rigorous, which not only invites sometimes intense competition, but also prepares you for college. In addition to academics, the music and arts programs are top notch and put on phenomenal performances. Many of the teachers are good and want to help and see their students succeed, and I have little experience with bad teachers as a result. Along with this, they provide pretty good resources, however, I feel as if the Chromebooks provided by the district, in my time using them, have been slow and frustrating most of the time.
Plano Independent School District is a very good district. Teachers care for their students, parents are really involved, and the academic and sports are very good!
