This school is going downhill fast...I plan on moving out of this district to get my daughter into a better school. Some parents I have spoken to are resorting to homeschooling.

If you write a honest review of the school this site deletes it. Lake Travis caters to the rich kids. If you have a cookie cutter kid then great. Normal people with normal kids go somewhere else.

I feel Lake Travis provides an excellent education opportunity for all students who wish to apply themselves. I believe the Lake Travis schools provide learning tools that compete somewhat to those offered in the private schools.

Having a daughter who has grown up in the LTISD since kindergarten and now goes to LTHS, I can honestly say a parent could not ask for any better for their students, especially in public education. There are a lot of high achievers here and test scores reflect that. If a parent is looking for exceptional

this school is for students who are advanced and competitive. I was in the top one percent and I feel like I was nurtured to be potential.

Our child seems to be one that thinks outside the box, colors outside the lines, and strums to her own beat, which is wonderful in our eyes. In the eyes of LTE she is dificent, and a problem child when it comes to her behavior. We have normal behavioral issues at home, nothing out of the norm for a

The situation is that she is bored to tears with the work they have for the Pre-K class. She brings home work home, does it in about 2 seconds and then looks at us like, "thats it". We feel they should be looking at the possibility that she may be advanced for her age, but instead they are going to complete opposite direction, thinking that she is behind, and a problem child. The Counselor even told us that she needs to work on "CONFORMING", a word that I personally am not to fond of. We have too many drones walking around this earth as it is. Why do we want to raise more. Read less

This is a good school, but the administrators, the principal and the counselors tell parents that they have no recourse even with blatant evidence of incompetancy on the part of individual teachers.
