Texas City ISD has 14 schools and nearly 8,000 students in 78.31 square miles of La Marque and Texas City. As the State of Texas continues to raise the standards of education, we are proud that our students and teachers in Texas City ISD are working hard to meet and exceed those standards.
Texas City ISD stands at the forefront of innovation in education with a range of pioneering programs. It boasts the only high school Fire Academy in the Houston-area, providing students with a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in firefighting and emergency services. Additionally, Texas City ISD is home to the sole Early College High School Program in Galveston County, empowering students to earn college credits beginning their freshman year while still attending high school. The district also leads the way with the only Maritime Program in Galveston County, offering specialized training for careers in the maritime industry. Moreover, the Two-Way Dual Language Program fosters bilingualism and cultural understanding, preparing students for success in our globalized world. Through these distinctive initiatives, Texas City ISD exemplifies a commitment to innovative education, equipping students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in an ever-evolving society.
Much of the Texas City Independent School District’s success is due to the fact that Texas City ISD recognizes the need for a cooperative effort among educators, students, parents and the community. Time and again, such a shared commitment has made a difference in the lives of Texas City students. Voters approved the passage of a $158.6 million bond referendum in November 2022.
The bond program includes two new replacement schools for La Marque High School and Calvin Vincent Early Childhood. The bond also includes renovations for fine arts and career and technical labs at Texas City High School. In addition, the bond includes district-wide initiatives: new STEM/Robotics Center, new Agriculture Bond and safety and security. Projects also include a new stadium for La Marque High School and renovations to the stadium at Texas City High School.
Throughout the years, Texas City ISD has received numerous academic commendations from the Texas Education Agency. Our schools also have been the recipient of many Distinctions from TEA. The honored Texas City ISD schools, students and staff achieve many local, state and national awards, including state award winning high school band, choir and athletics, and numerous recognitions in UIL academic events. Our Career and Technology Education programs, including marketing and robotics have achieved success at local, state, national and/or world competitions. Texas City ISD was named a District of Distinction for five years in a row for our comprehensive art program. We also received the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for the past four years.
