From elementary field trips to the exciting new College Academy initiative, we’re fostering active student engagement in a hands-on learning environment.

CFISD students are encouraged to work collaboratively and develop problem-solving skills. We prepare our students to be 21st-century learners so that they may become 21st-century leaders.


CFISD is open for all students who live within our district boundaries. Despite the perception that public schools suffer from larger classrooms, CFISD is proud to have an average 22:1 student-to-staff ratio. Let’s talk about graduation! Did you know that 93% of CFISD students graduate in four years? Many of our students are accepted to top-ranking colleges in Texas and across the nation. Last year alone, there were 71 Ivy League acceptances among our graduates.

We cheer our students to participate in a variety of academic, extracurricular and hands-on activities with many schools in CFISD offering blended learning environments. Beginning in elementary school, students experience a more relaxed, self-paced atmosphere, with flexible seating in the classroom and an emphasis on technology. This atypical approach inspires students’ interests, while encouraging deeper study and exploration.

What’s more, CFISD puts great emphasis on the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and offers an exceptional array of opportunities, such as Robotics, Engineering Design, Forensics and Advanced Quantitative Reasoning.

For students who thrive on a more accelerated pace, our gifted and talented program provides the depth and academic complexity children need to further develop their talents and interests.


From the arts to agriculture and everything in between, your best choice for your child’s education is all right here in CFISD.

Other learning opportunities include:

  • Dual High School/College Credit Courses

  • …to name just a few!

Choose The Finest Of Arts.

Whether it’s band and orchestra, sculpture or photography, Fine Arts play a significant role in educational development. That’s why, beginning in the elementary years, the importance of artistic appreciation and creativity is stressed throughout our schools. For those who further wish to develop their connection to the arts, students in middle and high school are able to pursue the many options in CFISD.
