Our Story

Temple ISD is a diverse, vibrant 6A school district in Central Texas with more than 8,700 students excelling in advanced academics, fine arts, athletics and career and technical education programs.  Over 200 National Merit Scholar Award Winners have graduated from Temple High School and our students have exceeded state and national SAT/ACT averages for more than 15 consecutive years. 
Temple ISD’s mission to inspire, motivate, and empower students to reach their maximum potential is achieved through innovative approaches such as blended learning, International Baccalaureate K-12, Project Lead the Way, and college and business partnerships.  In addition, the district offers a variety of wrap around services to support student needs through programs that provide free back backs, after school tutoring, weekend meals and adult education.
Most important, though, are our passionate teachers and staff members who go above and beyond every day for our students and are dedicated to making sure every child succeeds.   We invest in developing and supporting our staff through a tiered professional development model and comprehensive wellness program. 
In Temple ISD, we believe that educating our future leaders is the responsibility of all stakeholders—students, families, staff and the community.  We invite you to join us in our commitment to excellence and human development!
