Tyler Independent School District Reviews

I enjoyed being in TISD. It definitely was rigorous and in high school we had a wide variety of advanced courses available to us. I felt safe attending school. There were plenty of extracurricular activities available to the students. I wish that we were focused on having a study hall period. I get distracted very easily and procrastinate a lot. But a period of an hour or so where every teacher takes our phones away and we pull out our homework would've been great. It would've been great to have the support of other students and we could rely on each other with our homework if we didn't understand something. Also I wish there would be more equality within extracurricular activities offered on campuses. Everyone knows about the next football or basketball game that they can't miss but there are extracurricular activities such as golf, tennis, and even robotics club that are forgotten.

Some districts allow students to transfer to schools either in or outside their district. Children can also attend charter schools. Low-income students are eligible for scholarship funding to attend private schools. Under the federal No Child Left Behind law, students attending a Title I school designated as "in need of improvement" have the right to attend a higher performing school in the district.
My 13 year experience with TylerISD has been amazing. The district leaders support each and every child through their k-12 grades and you're guaranteed success. They hire the best teachers around, I now because they've made me the person I am today. The connections my teachers have made with is astonishing. They're there to teach you things but to also have your back when you need something. TylerISD is so great, they've made a new career center for students to get an early start in their career pathway. Theyre also have 2 classes at the CTC that I know of that you can actually get your license in for cosmetology and Pharmtech.
