One of the worst public schools ever. The district is run by dysfunctional parents, unqualified adminstrators, and a bunch of kids who have no decent upbringing whatsoever. Dysfunctional kids being raised by dysfunctional parents. That's why there was a mass migration from NISD in the late 1980's and 1990's
