Superintendent of Schools

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 fine arts, ag, athletic, and academic programs.  West 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 fifth straight year. This school year, we had many successes on the state- and national-level in Ag and Future Farmers of America (FFA), UIL Athletics (golf, power-lifting, and track), and Technology Student Association (TSA). Our community also voted to approve 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!
