Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the West Independent School District website!
It is my honor and privilege to introduce our school district and community to you. Whether you are a long-time West resident, a parent considering West ISD for your children, or a prospective team member, I hope you consider joining the West ISD family. With schools rich in tradition and pride, possessing an unmatched and unwavering work ethic from students and staff alike, supported by a community whose core beliefs are entrenched in family-centered values, West ISD is the education destination for you.
With "Children as its First Priority", West ISD continues to be a sought after school district for families and educators seeking the many benefits of a small, vibrant town and a mid-sized, energetic district. High expectations for students, competitive co- and extra-curricular programs, combined with a close proximity to several institutions of post-secondary education, West ISD offers unique opportunities for students, educators, and parents seeking excellence in education.
I hope you will visit our schools and community and see, firsthand, the great things that are happening in our Prekindergarten through Grade 12 classrooms. West ISD has award-winning art, ag, athletic, and academic programs. West Middle/High School is a Texas Education Agency designated T-STEM Academy, and the NAMM Foundation named our district a "Best Community for Music Education" for the fourth year in a row. This school year, we had many successes on the state-level in FFA, Destination Imagination, and the Technology Student Association. Our community even recently passed a bond for a new West Elementary School.
Great things are truly happening in West! Supported by a forward-thinking, student-centered Board of Trustees, staff, and community, I know my family and I are blessed to be a part of West ISD.
Go Trojans and Lady Trojans!
