Tyler Independent School District Reviews

Tyler's independent school district is an average one. In the recent years the facilities have been upgraded, but the district fails to provide above advanced learning criteria for its pupils. I am a former student as well as a parent that has children attending the schools. This district fails to provide more resources that stimulate the students' growth to become critical thinkers in the post grade school career paths. If this district had the funds to introduce a broader source of learning criteria would be beneficial to the students, community, and the local economy. The majority of high school graduate often elect to pursue a career as a registered nurse (females), CDL licensed truck driver, or a factory worker at Trane; because these jobs a considered the best jobs. Sometimes the district fails to educate that there are more career paths to pursue. Tyler ISD is an mediocre but fails to measure up to other school district to its counterparts in neighboring cities.

Overall, I had a very positive experience and would not have wanted to receive my K-12 education anywhere else! Even though I will not benefit from them, I am glad to see the schools beginning to be remolded or rebuilt.
Very friendly students and teachers. Parents are also really involved. Though there are some known bullying problems, when brought up to counselor, it is usually solved. Many of the students complain about the food served during lunch. They could be better quality. Buildings are currently being built new, so students are currently really excited.
