Spring Branch Independent School District Reviews

Spring Branch ISD is a great district for staying involved and active with not only the community, but ongoing national or world issues. The schools also do an incredible job of connecting all grade levels, by providing many opportunities for high school students to be involved with pre-school, elementary and middle school students. The area in which the district lacks, would be the financial and disciplinary aspects, however this has not stopped students from reaching their amazing potentials through either academics, athletics, or the arts provided by the district. The schools in SBISD have seen state level accomplishments, whether through our male and female soccer teams, our debate program, or theater programs, students are able to pursue a wide range of interests.

Stratford High School has diverse science programs, ranging from computer science to geology, and I am extremely grateful for all the opportunities they've given me. Additionally, Stratford has a program called spartan time, a thirty minute class that focuses on student well being. Some of the lessons include: anonymous reporting , assisting friends facing depression, etc.
Despite these incredible programs and distinguished academics, SBISD could improve their recycling program. Currently, my school only has paper recycling bins, many of which are improperly used. I did start a plastic bottle recycling initiative through my environmental club, but I was only allowed to set up one bin. Having numerous plastic recycling bins would be a great way to promote sustainability and recycling.
Overall, my experience with SBISD has been very enjoyable, and I will forever be thankful for the opportunities and lessons.
I attended this district since I was a Junior in highschool. People tell stories about being left out of highschool on the social side. However my experience with being left out applies to academic opportunities of the school. When I had enrolled at the start of my junior year, I had already missed out on the majority of the schools biggest opportunities. I missed out on opportunities that I was genuinely interested in, which I rarely find in school nowadays. These opportunities required students to make commitments to their programs in their sophomore years, and due to the fact that I lacked the knowledge that I would be attending the school, I was left with no way to become part of the programs. I wish I could have done those interesting things like getting nursing certifications before graduating. It felt like missing that one chance left the rest of my experiences feeling flat.
