It's a GREAT day to be a HORNET!!!

  • Huntsville Independent School District is committed to Building Champions -- in and out of the classroom.  Through academic rigor and well designed programs, HISD strives to meet the educational and emotional needs of ALL students.  Offering a full day Pre-K, advanced academics and college options along with a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, students are achieving.  In addition to traditional learning, HISD offers personalized learning options through virtual magnet and flexible alternative education programs. Exposure to fine arts begins in early elementary with choir, dance, and theatre arts available to secondary students where creativity can be expressed and talents showcased through exceptional performances.  The Hornet band program can’t be beat! Hundreds of students participate in the intermediate and middle school bands learning the basics on their way to a spot in the acclaimed HHS Military Marching Band. With over 200 members, our band is rich in tradition, excellence, and pride - routinely competing at superior levels. We are also proud of our championship athletic programs, offering 11 different sports for male and female student athletes.  More than 700 students are involved in athletics annually, with teams and individuals excelling far beyond their regular seasons - many clinching district to state-level titles in real Texas UIL sports. Promoting college and workforce readiness is the focus of the Career & Technical Education Program (CTE). Proudly offering all 16 of the career clusters recognized by the Texas Education Agency as well as numerous options for obtaining industry-based licenses and certifications such as Cosmetology, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Welding, helps to make students more marketable.  With almost $4M in scholarships awarded to seniors, Hornet graduates can compete with students from anywhere whether they choose to attend a 2-year college, 4-year university, or join the military or workforce. Success depends heavily on parent and community involvement and HISD is proud of the many positive volunteer, mentor, faith-based, business, and Sam Houston State University partnerships that provide necessary support for our students.  

    HISD is Building Champions. Every One.  Every Day.
