Northside Independent School District is a family-friendly school district and the district of choice for hundreds of families each year. We are proud of the exemplary academic and co-curricular programs that attract families to NISD. With enrollment at over 106,000, Northside remains the fourth-largest public school district in Texas. We are committed to the fundamental principles that are the strength of traditional public schools:
- hiring the best and most experienced teachers who are highly trained, motivated, and credentialed in the subjects and grade levels they teach,
- providing a wide variety of extracurricular activities and clubs that allow students to discover their talents and explore their interests,
- offering a diversity in learning experiences and social interactions so students are exposed to the wondrous, multi-faceted/ethnic ‘quilt’ that is American society, and
- encouraging a strong sense of community and partnership.
I urge you to support your public schools by getting involved, being informed about public education’s challenges and successes, and being a partner with the schools to benefit children. The education of our youth is truly the best investment we can make in San Antonio and America. And it all starts in your neighborhood school.
