Going to Travis was overall a good experience for me. The students there were supplied with their needs, such as desks and materials, which was very fortunate. The school was also very diverse, and there were many clubs and activities that embraced the diversity, which helped everyone to feel included. Another good thing about Travis was the emphasis on education, made not only by the principals but by the teachers! I remember that most of my teachers were constantly encouraging other students and I to turn in our work and study. There was also a very friendly environment that seemed to keep the hallways and classrooms both safe and comfortable places.

Travis High School is a great high school! My experience was absolutely amazing! The teachers are extremely helpful, whenever I struggle with a subject, or I am not able to maintain a decent grade in the class, my teachers always go out of their way to help me and encourage me to do better. Our counselors department coordinate with students effectively, providing the students with all the classes they need. Our Principal and AP's take action immediately, when needed, and have made Travis a safe place. Our school has countless clubs and organizations students can join! We have clubs like Student Council, Model UN, as well as cultural clubs like Japanese Club and Muslim Student Association! The diversity at our school will never make any student feel left out. Our remarkable students, staff and SCHOOL SPIRIT make Travis High School the best high school in Fort Bend!
William B. Travis, one of the leading schools in Fortbend Independent School District. I've spent over three years at this school, and my experience here certainly doesn't lack variety. From the school lunch to the staff members, attending Travis has been an overall positive experience, and I'm glad to call myself a Travis tiger. As a freshman, I was automatically taken aback by the welcoming nature the student body has, and the multiple ways the staff attempted to make the freshman feel comfortable. Additionally, the plethora of clubs and extracurricular activities give one a sense of choice when deciding how to contribute more to the school, and this feeling is unmatched. The only gripe I would have about the school is that its age is really starting to show, and the only half of the school has been repainted. To conclude, Travis High School is an excellent school with an excellent education.
