The programs create pathways to college for underrepresented students by awarding them academic honors and connecting them with universities across the country.
Additionally, WISD received a “A for superior achievement” rating for the 2022-23 School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST). FIRST ensures that Texas public schools are held accountable for the quality of their financial management practices and that they improve those practices.
