As one of Fort Bend’s oldest elementary schools, Settlers Way has a long history of doing it right. The school’s success comes from strong teacher instruction and the ability to meet the needs of a diverse student population.
The school's guiding philosophy is that every student can learn, with teachers and staff working to provide a motivating, challenging learning environment that meets the needs of all students, regardless of learning style.
