Laredo Independent School District
LISD is made up of students, parents, teachers, administrators and support staff, all working together in the pursuit of achieving excellence in education.  At the Laredo ISD, learning is the key to a bright and successful future. By setting high standards, the district plays a crucial role in preparing the students to meet the challenges and demands of today's high-tech, multicultural work place.
Our History

The Laredo Independent School District has come a long way since being established more than a century ago.  From a single room schoolhouse, to a district sprawling more than 13.83 square miles, the district is rich in history and tradition. The district reflects the colorful heritage and unique culture that make Laredo, Texas, a city like no other.

The Laredo Independent School District is made up of 30 educational institutions: 21 elementary schools, four middle schools, three high schools, three magnet schools, and the Early College High School. The three magnet schools are the Vidal M. Treviño School of Communications and Fine Arts and a Health and Science Magnet school.  The Treviño Magnet School offers talented students instruction in the areas of communications, music, dance, visual arts, drama, and academics.  It was the city's first magnet school. The Health and Science Magnet School, located at Martin High School, was designed to provide a solid foundation and a rigorous curriculum to prepare students pursuing health careers. The Magnet School
for Engineering and Technology Applications, located at Cigarroa High School, was designed to provide
an intensive curriculum to persuade students to pursue careers in the engineering and technology industries. The F. S. Lara Academy is the district's alternative education school.

Our Vision

Our schools are safe and caring environments that motivate and prepare students to contribute and excel in life. They build on the strong and expanding foundation already established by families involved in their children's learning.

Our students are highly successful. They are critical thinkers and effective problem solvers who are confident, self-motivated, and actively involved in our local and global community.

Our community actively supports the learning process. It provides full access to human, technological, and fiscal resources. This partnership demonstrates total confidence in our school system and holds it to the highest educational standards.

The district is accredited by the Texas Education Agency .
