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 90 languages. Among its numerous honors, the district had 71 National Merit Scholar finalists for 2017 and its graduates received scholarship offers exceeding $110 million. Five Fort Bend ISD schools serving Riverstone were recognized as “A+” campuses in the 2017 Children at Risk ranking, with Commonwealth Elementary ranked second among all Houston elementaries and Fort Settlement Middle School ranked first among all Houston-area middle schools.
The district is accomplished both academically and artistically, with the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation selecting the Fort Bend district as one of the 2017 best communities for music education.
