Houston Independent School District Info

The Houston Independent School District is the largest public school system in Texas and the seventh-largest in the United States. Our schools are dedicated to giving every student the best possible education through an intensive core curriculum and specialized, challenging instructional and career programs. HISD is working hard to become Houstonians' K-12 school system of choice, constantly improving and refining instruction and management to make them as effective, productive, and economical as possible.

HISD set specific goals and a detailed blueprint was designed to reach them. This focus on planning and achievement is what "Performance by Design" is all about. In 1990, the HISD Board of Education drafted A Declaration of Beliefs and Visions. This call for districtwide change has been the driving force behind many of the district's improvements, and in 2001, the board reaffirmed its commitment to the goals and strategies outlined in that landmark document.


The Houston Independent School District exists to strengthen the social and economic foundation of Houston by assuring its youth the highest-quality elementary and secondary education available anywhere.
