Educating the Whole Child
Floresville ISD prepares students for success by providing not only exceptional academic opportunities, but also social and emotional support for our students. Every secondary student takes a researched-based strengths assessment identifying their top five strengths. Teachers use researched based strategies to build relationships with students that connect them to their peers, school, and community. Elementary and middle school students create social contracts in every class that define how they will treat one another and the values that they want to see as they learn. This gives students a voice in their educational experience.
FISD provides peer-mentoring opportunities for students. For instance, Link Crew, an organization made-up of upperclassmen, mentor freshmen throughout the year to ensure a successful transition to high school. They also hold a 6th grade camp to help the difficult transition from elementary to middle school. Incoming 6th graders are able to learn the campus, meet teachers and peers as well as set goals for their first year at Floresville Middle School. Learn more about Floresville ISD here.
