Alum: HISD has provided me with great experiences. I have attended 2 schools within this district. One focused on academics while the other helped international students adapt to the environment. With that being said, each school is diverse and very welcoming. Most of the teachers are great! You can tell they care about the impact they make on their students. They encourage students to join sports and clubs focused on STEM/ interests. The district also provides free transportation and free/ reduced lunch for kids who are eligible.
One less thing to worry about!
The good thing is that they allow students to transfer schools if they are not satisfied with that school. The whole process is really easy too.
However, HISD could work on their response time in critical times like in the flooding season. They need to prioritize student/staff safety over attendance.
Overall, good district. I feel prepared for college and I believe I am provided the resources available to succeed.
