San Antonio Independent School District Reviews

San Antonio school district had so many resources available to us to get us prepared for college. We were even enrolled in an Alamo college before we graduated! Several universities came to visit and we were exposed to many opportunities. The food wasn’t great, and the administration was a little tougher than in other areas I had attended school in, but overall SAISD really cared about the success of their graduates.

My experience with San Antonio Independent School District was average. Throughout the years I have had many teachers in and out. I lacked some class knowledge because of that. Especially with my English class. Throughout my four years of English, I have had 6 teachers and many days with substitute teachers. Freshman year is when i had the most teachers switch in and out. Sophomore year, my teacher was always out and at one point she just gave up on us. This happens because of the district's hiring system. They often hire teachers that are not reliable or are just simply not passionate for their work. Last year, the district fired many teachers, most of them really wanted to make a change in the students education and were great at pushing the student to greatness. My school this year is more focused on dress code than our education. A lot of changes need to be made.
SAISD, in my opinion, does not provide the resources necessary for 100% of students to reach college like the superintendent claims to want. As an "academically successful" student, I see a gap between those in advanced courses and those in regular courses provided. Teachers tend to bypass the "regular" students in my opinion and focus more so on academically successful students. Although I can understand just why they might, it is unfair and discouraging to other students that wish to achieve the same but fail to meet "advanced" requirements. The SAISD administration is very toxic in my opinion.
