We appreciate your interest in the Texas City Independent School District. Our students, parents, staff, community, Superintendent and Board of Trustees have worked diligently to make our school district one of the highest achieving in the Greater Houston area. We are able to enjoy this distinction through the contributions of dedicated professional and support staff.
Texas City, with a population of 45,099 offers the benefits of bay area living including the “world’s longest man-made fishing pier,” stretching five miles into Galveston Bay. We are located 35 minutes from Houston and 15 minutes from the beaches of Galveston. With the support of local industries and businesses we have created incentive programs for employee wellness, academic achievement, drug and alcohol prevention programs, scholarships, and a wide range of opportunities for student success.
The district is served by one high school (grades 9–12), one middle school (grades 7–8), one intermediate school (grades 5-6), and four elementary schools (grades Early Childhood–4) and a DAEP Center (grades 5-12).
Our compensation plan is among the best in the area. The 2012-2013 beginning salary for a teacher with a Bachelor’s degree is $46,350. The Master’s degree teacher begins with a salary of $47,483. Bilingual certified teachers earn an additional annual supplement of $3,000.
