My exprience at Willis ISD has been great! Classmates are willing to help eachother and Teachers are ready to awnser any questions . Im so glad that the Highschool offers four year courses for several fields such as Law , Medicine,Engineering ,etc.
I also love the measures that are currently being taken to prevent any crimes that can hurt the student body,and the school itself.
This is why I love this district.
The reason for not putting the other star is because I think there should be a Orchestra program integrated to give students another option in music .

As a parent, I am very disappointed that the only thing taught is the state test. The main focus in academics is preparing the kids for testing. Benchmark testing, MAP testing and STAAR testing! YUK!
Throughout my years of being at Willis High School, the overall experience was okay. If you got the right teachers that actually care about you. We just got a CTE building that really helps you focus in on your pathway to adultery. With the right pathway you can be leaving high school with many certifications and go straight into a real life job. The feeling of the school is more so towards the sports rather the academics. They boast about the cost about the building. Don’t get me wrong it’s a very expensive building, but why not brag about the new opportunities.
