The Comal Independent School District is a fast-growing and innovative district with more than 23,800 students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. Families are attracted to Comal ISD because of its family values, neighborhood schools and safe environments. Academics, fine arts, athletics and citizenship are emphasized at the 31 campuses located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
The district takes great pride in its excellent gifted/talented program, career and technology offerings, dual high school/college enrollment, wide range of special education services, strong emphasis on teacher training, and outstanding fine arts, agricultural and athletic programs.
While elementary students are learning about pitch, tone, scales and recorders, middle and high school students across the district have been competing in UIL music competitions and earning high marks.
The Pieper Ranch Middle School CyberPatriot team will be recognized at the Mayor's Cyber Cup Awards Luncheon & College Fair March 30, after being named the Rookie Team of the year in the San Antonio area.
During the current school year, Comal ISD scheduled 10 early release days. Six of those 10 are set aside specifically for teachers to have the time to collaborate with each other, and the result of this collaboration time is an increase in student performance.
It lasted only 11 days, but its results are impressive. A student-led environmental campaign resulted in 88 boxes, 2,750 pairs or 5,500 shoes. They are now on their way to a non-profit organization which will repurpose and recycle every one.
