Both my parents graduated from Loyd Star and it is home to me. It is an excellent school with a awesome atmosphere of love, support, academics, sports, and family. I will be a proud graduate of the Loyd Star Hornet 2019 class!

I have enjoyed my overall experience at Loyd Star Attendance Center because it is a smaller school, although there still is some diversity among students. I have attended ten years there so there is a familiarity among students as well as teachers, who often treat us like we are their own children. I believe this fosters personal growth through gaining confidence in who we are as people, with role models we become bonded with long term and who discipline with a spirit of love. I would recommend adding to resources through more up to date materials such as textbooks and library resources. If I had to change one aspect, I would do more fundraising in order to upgrade classrooms with necessary materials in order to improve the education process.
I spent thirteen years at the Loyd Star School. My education was unbelievable how they teach so well with nice, friendly, and tutoring opportunities when you don't understand something. I loved the the teachers, lunches, and the special sports or group activities. The only thing needed to be worked on is the student counselor and the bullies.
