Spring Independent School District Reviews

Preferably I'd like to see an effort to improve school starting times; the students wake up so early in the morning that it is often difficult for us to manage our time efficiently. With us up before 6am we are often drowsy, and may have less time to get a good night's rest considering some of us have jobs, homework, and extracurricular activities. Our counselors do make an effort to make sure we have resources for life after school, including college and guides for the SAT and next year classes, but it is often that they are inaccessible. My former counselor, years 9 through 10, was hard to reach. Sometimes I find classes difficult not because I am not paying attention, but because teachers move at an incredible pace. Our classes are often large too, so some teachers may not have time to make sure we know the material. This is certainly an issue I feel could use improving, as with food. Especially after school where the menu is only a single meal with not much options.

I think my high school is a very good role model for the rest of SISD: we have college-readiness, diversity and academics. SISD could work on making teachers seem as if they care to create a better learning environment for students. Making a student feel like their opinions and participation matters is extremely important in getting students to cooperate with teachers.
Administration could also be better. There is a lot of mystery as to what is going on within the school district. Many students and teachers are unsure of things. Informing students, parents, teachers and administrations would help make sure that the Board and the school administration have a better connection.
My school specifically should work on including more electives that students could take. Many students find themselves trying out for sports teams outside of our school. I think that including some type of sports or making it more apparent of the opportunities that a student has would be extremely beneficial.
The most lacking department of the district, is the arts program. Moreover the lack of one in most of the Spring schools . Its understandable that they focus on academics such as the sciences and math subject areas, but this is haphazardly bottle-necking the creative arts as a whole. Which means the students aren't able to express themselves creatively or students who aren't going into a math or science fields won't have as many opportunities as the next person. This means that the other majors would have a leg up, but this is having the opposite affect on the inverse art majors. This in itself is a large failing in the districts court as a whole.
