Humble ISD students have a long history of outperforming students in Texas and the nation; once again, the district’s latest accountability rating was Met Standard, the highest possible rating. An important component in Humble ISD’s success is the support it receives from local businesses and families. The Humble ISD Education Foundation has raised more than $6.74 million to provide innovative and enriching classroom projects. The most significant of these projects is the Humble ISD Insperity Observatory which houses space telescopes under a retractable roof for scientific education and research. In addition, the district benefits from the involvement of its parents. All campuses have active PTA/PTO or PTSA organizations and engaged booster clubs for sports and fine arts groups.
Located 17 miles northeast of downtown Houston, Humble ISD has 43 campuses more than 40,000 students and over 5,000 employees, who are all working to “develop each child intellectually, artistically, emotionally, physically, and socially so that all students are life-long learners, complex thinkers, responsible global citizens and effective communicators.”
