The Brownsville Independent School District (BISD) serves the largest city and student population in the Rio Grande Valley. Approximately 7,000 employees have accepted the challenge of serving a population of over 46,000 students. The district recognizes and addresses the unique cultural lifestyle of South Texas with a broad selection of activities and programs for all students. These programs range from early college high schools to support programs for students with special needs. There is pride in the progress BISD has made with regard to state-mandated testing. Better scores have translated into more seniors fulfilling degree requirements and graduating college and career-ready. Academically, both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Texas Education Agency have accredited Brownsville public schools.
