Texas City Independent School District Reviews

I love all my teachers, but the administration is awful. The hall monitors harass students for violation of dress code. The district is inconsiderate of students’ living conditions. Most students come from low income families and can not afford dress code attire. The low income families purchase clothing from goodwill and accept donations from charities and can not be picky towards clothing. Another thing, the district is desperate for staff, they will hire anybody and relocate staff to unrelated job descriptions. The district also provide large funds to our sports department who have only 1 game. The money could be used to pay rises for staff and fund other academic activities. I hope my school district will see the outcomes and make better decisions towards students and staff.

Texas City is full of very supportive and friendly teachers who have no problem in going the extra half mile to ensure your success. The school has an excellent Choral department and excellent Robotics Program, with a whole four-year engineering program supported by Project Lead the Way. Besides the administration being uncooperative at very rare points, red tape, or obnoxious students in the hallways, everybody at Texas City is happy to see and help a new face!
Texas City ISD provides a lot of opportunities for students, but lacks connections that students need between staff members and students. Although the rules and regulations have changed throughout administration to make our schools a safer place, administration has lost the true meaning of education. Yes, our schools are high tech, and yes we are more privileged than some could say, but the education system in TCISD has collapsed and needs to start from the ground up.
