About Our School:
The Spring Independent School District serves over 32,000 prekindergarten through twelfth-grade students in a diverse and growing district located 20 miles north of downtown Houston in a suburban area of HarrisCounty that spans 57 square miles. The District’s ethnic breakdown is 38.45 percent African American, 35.9 percent Hispanic, 20.6 percent white, 4.8 percent Asian and Pacific Islander and 0.2 percent Native American. Student needs drive the decisions that are made in Spring ISD, and priorities for meeting those needs have been established in a Five-Year Education Plan that is updated regularly. In addition, a Ten-Year Facilities Master Plan helps the District address the needs of one of the fastest-growing student populations in HarrisCounty and the GulfCoast region. The District opened four new schools in fall of 2006, bringing the total number of campuses to 30, which includes two high schools classified as 5A, a high-school career academy, a ninth-grade center, six sixth- through eighth-grade middle schools, one prekindergarten through second-grade primary school, one third-through fifth-grade intermediate school, and 18 prekindergarten through fifth-grade elementary schools. A third high school will open in fall of 2007. The District focuses on being fiscally responsible in all areas. For the fourth consecutive year, Spring ISD has earned a rating of superior achievement in the state’s financial accountability rating system. The rating is based on the district’s receiving a perfect score on 21 financial indicators.
