Welcome to FSHISD! » Welcome!


Welcome to the Fort Sam Houston Independent School District! We are happy and proud you have chosen to visit our website. Here you will learn about our staff, our instructional programs, pertinent information for parents, students, and community, and much more.
FSHISD educates the children of active military personnel. The district is coterminous with the Fort Sam Houston Installation, meaning it has the same boundaries as the installation. We are diligent in our efforts to maintain a strong partnership with the Installation for the sake of our military-connected children.
The District is comprised of two campuses – Fort Sam Houston Elementary, grades PK-5, Robert G. Cole Middle School, grades 6-8, and Robert G. Cole High School, grades 9-12. The district enrollment is approximately 1500.
FSHISD has a history and tradition of educational excellence. The District is proud of its achievements, having earned high ratings in the Texas Public School Accountability System and met all state compliance requirements. Additionally, the schools have met the Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) federal requirement established by the 2001 No Child Left Behind (NCLB). For AYP, campuses and their student subgroups were required to meet targets of achievement, assessment, attendance, and graduation rates.
FSHISD is committed to providing and cultivating a culture of continuous improvement. We set high expectations in order to prepare our students for success in their pursuit of higher education or in the workforce.
We invite you to “surf” our website to learn about the wonderful learning taking place in FSHISD. We are glad to have you visit our schools and staff.
