Mission Statement

"Learn Today - Fly Forever"

Our Purpose:

The Needville Independent School District is continuously moving forward to challenge and prepare its students to live a successful life in their future. All Needville ISD students develop the essential academic skills and acquire the knowledge base necessary to build lifelong learning skills and a strong foundation of English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts, health, physical education, and technology. In addition to the core curriculum, students learn the duties of citizenship, economic responsibilities, and an appreciation of their common American heritage. Students have the opportunity to develop the ability to think logically, independently, and creatively to communicate effectively.
Quality instruction is provided at all grade levels. In a collaborative partnership with Wharton County Junior College, NHS students have the opportunity to earn 30+ hours of college credit while taking their high school courses at the Needville High School (dual credit) or they may choose to take Advanced Placement courses. The district encourages the students to be involved in co-curricular programs/clubs besides challenging themselves through their academic studies. Many opportunities are available throughout the school district for participation and volunteerism.
Needville I.S.D. encompasses 200 square miles and is the first consolidated district in Fort Bend County. For more information, call 979-793-4308 or visit www.needvilleisd.com
