Niche User: The overall curriculum expectations are so high here, but that's simply because we have some of the best teachers in the state here! Our students win national and state level competitions all the time, and our overall atmosphere exudes confidence.
The only real thing I have problems with are that the school is so competitive that some students that would be valedictorians at any other school become top 20% students here. We also have many, many students per class so you really have to compete for the attention of the teachers in some classes. The classes aren't tough to pass, but to keep track of more than 2 AP classes in one year is just exhausting and makes the experience stressful. This stress is assuaged slightly by the school events such as Jacket Feast (a day where food trucks from downtown DFW are available during lunch time) and Dodgeball/Volleyball tournaments though. Regardless of these cushiony extras, the school is high quality but difficult.

Senior: I absolutely love my school district! I remember transferring from Richardson to garland my first grade year and I was terrified but the environment about my elementary school was amazing and so welcoming! Shoutout to you carver elementary! And then having to go to middle school and now High school, it’s been honestly terrific. I’m so glad I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of this district because it’s evolved throughout the years in a good way and I’m so thankful to have been through this district.
