Riverstone | Best Schools in Fort Bend County

An aspect that makes Riverstone one of Houston’s best neighborhoods is the fact that it is served by some of the most highly acclaimed schools in the Fort Bend Independent School District. With a focus on student achievement and development, Fort Bend ISD continues to offer outstanding educational opportunities, both in the classroom and through a broad array of extracurricular activities.

One of the district’s greatest strengths lies in its multicultural diversity. Students in FBISD schools represent more than 25 countries, and students and their families speak more than 100 languages. Among its numerous honors, the district had 48 National Merit Scholar finalists for 2013 and its 5,226 graduates received scholarship offers exceeding $42 million. Four Fort Bend ISD schools serving Riverstone were recognized as “A” campuses in the 2013 Children at Risk ranking, with Commonwealth Elementary ranked third among all Houston elementaries and Fort Settlement Middle School ranked ninth among all Houston-area middle schools.
