As a former SRISD student I can honestly say favoritism is highly shown amungst those who are related to staff or to families that are well known. Teachers also favor students more popular than others. Academic wise, I didn't feel as challenged in most classes as I did in few others. Staff, at times, can be blinded to teaching students with different methods. Teachers fail to realize not all students learn at the same way and pace. The way students are ranked is a joke. Often times teachers were too focused on the latest gossip such as scandals and affairs between staff members. School lunch is terrible and flavorless, and at times not well cooked. Not once but twice did I get expired milk. One year when several grade levels refused to eat school lunch, Mr. Salazar would type in our ID numbers and throw away the trays. This should be illegal. The school board does not take our parents' concerns seriously unless related to one of the school board members. Bullying is a fad in the schools of this district. I honestly feel anti-bullying is not enforced and teachers simply ignore it and pretend it is not happening. Overall, this is a school that needs work. A lot of work
