A Message From The Superintendent


Welcome to Whitesboro Independent School District!

     You have found one of the greatest, “destination” school systems in north Texas! We here at WISD emphasize success in everything we do. We excel academically, with campuses that routinely receive distinctions for state testing, for U.I.L. competition, both on and off the field, and for the amount of opportunities that our students have to “shine”! We offer a vast CTE program, encompassing the interest and needs of our community, which provides our students with certifications and training that will be immediately applicable in their desired fields. We support the whole child with programs in place to provide a positive atmosphere that promotes character, integrity, loyalty, team work, perseverance and hard work. With these things, the only option is success!

     Our student population is just above 1500 spanning four campuses: Hayes Primary, pre-K-2; Whitesboro Intermediate, 3-5; Whitesboro Middle School, 6-8; and Whitesboro High School, 9-12. We have great kids here in Whitesboro!

As we embark on this new school year, I’m excited about what the future holds. I will have four Whitesboro students enrolled for the 16/17 school year and can think of no other town, or school system, that I’d want my family to be raised in. This is truly a “community” school and we embrace the “it takes a village” mentality!

     I welcome each of you back to WISD and hope for your, and our, best year yet! Together there is no obstacle that we cannot pass, no challenge that we cannot conquer and no student that we cannot reach!


It’s Great to be a Bearcat!
