United Independent School District Reviews
As a student myself for all my academic life, I am very appreciative and grateful for all the things this district does for every one of their schools. Without their continuous help in increasing our education with college readiness, I will now be entering Texas State University with fifteen college hours; thanks to my district!
United Independent School District provides what students need such as lunch, breakfast, SAT preparation books, and SAT waivers, and now UISD is providing Chromebook Laptops for students who do not have computers at home and free lunches for people in need during the COVID-19 quarantine. However, I dislike the fact that school buses need to be rent for transportation for school activities such as out-of-town competitions/games for sports and field trips for clubs at the end of the year. School buses shouldn’t be rented to school organizations because transportation is a need for school activities.
Being a student in the United Independence School District, we are given all materials and instruction needed to be successful. However, it is sad to say that those who are the most hardworking will hardly ever be recognized unless they are familiar with another working in the district. I had maintained perfect attendance and straight A's all 12 years of school, and on graduation day, the only recognition I got was to stand as they say my name. It was not only disappointing to me but to my family as well, who have seen me work hard and sacrifice to be where I am today. Although I am glad I was at least recognized, I would've expected more knowing all the physical and mental drainage I experienced for meeting society's expectations of a "perfect student."
