International Leadership of Texas - Garland High School Reviews
Rating 3.8 out of 5 40 reviews
I have been attending iltexas for years and they have always pushed for excellence. With better supplies and initiatives the arts department could be much better.
ILTexas is an amazing school for my Child. I am amazed by all the opportunities that my child has in comparison to their old school.
If your child is passionate on politics and international travel I highly recommend this school. Be mindful, they do not provide what a teenager would deem a normal high school experience, but if he/she takes the right steps and talks to the right people, they will be set up for a wonderful future in foreign affairs.
My experience at International Leadership was very pleasant. The staff were very helpful throughout my time there and made me feel welcomed. The teachers were well organized with there instruction and work. The college adviser was a big help and a reliable resource at the school and helped me and many students plan for college. There are of course things I would like to change such as having better equipment for all sports. As a student athlete were had limited supply even though we have some amazing sports teams that have produced many amazing athletes.
It has a very unique system in comparison to other schools, in a way that you basically cannot fail, which is honestly contradictory to the belief of it being a "college prep" school. All in all, it could also be doing a lot more if it had more money and funding, as we have to resort to having flag football and a makeshift field since we don't have enough money.
I'm a big fan of the opportunities that it gives to students. I myself was able to spend time in China over the summer. Not only was I able to spend time there, but I could communicate with the locals in their language. I wouldn't have been able to do that if I hadn't learned Chinese through the classes at this school. The only downside is that because it is so new, many of the extra circulars are underdeveloped. The band and theater perpetually don't have the funds that they need. The same can even be said about some of the less popular sports like baseball.
ILTexas Garland High School really prepared me for my university. The Leadership classes prepared me and gave me the confidence to take on leadership roles at my university. Last year I got an opportunity to meet Former Ambassador Max Baucus when he came to our school. I built up the courage to talk to him which was a cool experience that gave me so much confidence! If I can talk to an Ambassador then I can talk to anyone and that has helped me so much. Also, my chinese and spanish classes were such an amazing opportunity. I always freak out my friends when I order in spanish/chinese at a restaurant or have conversations in spanish /chinese. They get so impressed. Besides all that I loved my teachers they helped me grow and get a college scholarship to my first choice school! I don't know what to say other than I am sooooo thankful that my parents brought me to ILTexas Garland High School.
I enjoyed studying here at International Leadership Of Texas because it prepared us to become better leaders not only for our community, but better leaders globally. I am well prepared to go off to college because ILT has prepared me these past 4 years. It's a great opportunity to come to this school because of all the service opportunities we get to serve our community, but we get to travel to China, learn their language and culture, and serve them.
International Leadership of Texas is a well-cultivated school. They help you bring the best of you into the world. They teach you so that you can make the world a better place.
What I like about this school is how much the teachers care for you and how much they want you to learn. The opportunities given is a big plus.
As a person who is now in the 11th grade and will graduate in 2021 from international leadership of garland Texas high school, I can absolutely tell you that the school may have its nice looks, and the reputation may seem good, but it is just like any other public school, and I have been to many different public and charter schools, here at IL-Texas they focus on their public test scores, not on how to help the student learn and grow as in individual person.
Seems like a great school according to scores and statistics but completely different from the inside. It feels like students can not trust the administrators because they are always just trying to protect themselves from looking bad to the board and doesn’t feel like they actually care about their students. They act one way with the students and another with parents. They also do not spread out their fundings equally and give more importance to athletics and JROTC over the fine arts programs, such as dance, digital media classes, etc.
Although it may seem like it is an amazing school when looking into it, it is not that special when you attend. It feels as if the school cares more about their ratings and scorings on tests. The workload is not like your average high school and it feels like a depressing and stressful environment inside.
It's a great high school if college is the something you will do when you graduate, everything else they aren't experts on like recruiting to the military or going to trade schools.
ILTexas is a great school where anybody can find a place in. It is a very diverse, friendly, and accepting environment. The admin and staff and teachers and everyone participating is very helpful and understanding. There are many academic opportunities and a lot of help coming from just about everyone in the school. I have really enjoyed my experience and am loving the fact that I am graduating from ILTexas garland High School.
Love the school as a whole. Good labs and resources. Connections between teachers and students make things so much easier. Very strict about grades and uniform.
My kids are thriving at International leadership of Texas High school Garland.The school work and the homework that the students are doing is preparing them for college. International Leadership Of Texas Garland High School have a higher standard that they expect from their students. they teach them how to interact and respect other cultures.
