History of the District
When seven rural schoolhouses combined to create the North East Independent School District in 1955, the area 10 miles north of The Alamo was still farmland, ranchland and chaparral. Yet, the newly formed North East ISD attracted families desiring a quality education and the best schools in San Antonio, Texas for their children.
