We are excited to announce new SBISD grade level guides (PK-12) that have been developed by our Academics team to provide an overview of what your child will learn in school every nine weeks and resources to support their learning at home.

You will find strategies based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and SBISD priority standards to help you help your child meet his or her learning goals. Teams of SBISD teachers studied the TEKS and further identified the essential, or priority, standards necessary to master at each grade level.
These guides provide clear, consistent expectations for what SBISD students should be learning as we strive to prepare Every Child for his/her T-2-4 goals.

Access the grade level guides here.


Mark your calendars!

Each year, SBISD hosts a College Night event for students and families. The goal is to provide information, ensure access to higher education, and help guide students pursue their T-2-4 options. Due to Covid-19, our in-person event has been moved to a virtual platform. The Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (TACRAO) is hosting and funding all Texas college fairs for the 2020-2021 school year. This change will allow our students and families to meet and interact safely with representatives from institutions of higher education across the nation.  

SBISD College Night 2020

  • Date:  October 12th, 2020
  • Time:  6:00-8:00 pm

The 2020-21 school year will present new challenges and new opportunities for Spring Branch ISD and our community. No matter what challenges we face, our responsibility is to ensure students in SBISD continue learning safely and effectively. Our commitment to inspire minds and shape lives while maintain-ing student learning and academic performance is non-negotiable.

The District is equally resolved in its commitment to go beyond to  prioritize health and safety for students, employees and the entire SBISD Family.  These two overriding priorities have informed and shaped  
our 2020-21 back-to-school plan, LearnSBISD.
LearnSBISD affirms how - together - we’ll support these priorities, and your role as our vital partners. LearnSBISD provides information families need to make the best decisions for their child’s education. 
The plan was informed by countless hours of research and planning by district and campus leaders, employee and family surveys, medical professionals, lessons learned from Spring 2020, summer pilot programs, and local, state and national health and government agency guidance. LearnSBISD addresses four critical areas of focus.

Cristopher Melendez was honored during the 17th annual Character Without Question awards ceremony at the Feb. 24, 2020 Spring Branch ISD board meeting. He was nominated and selected for the award from the Academy of Choice student body for embodying strong character traits such as honesty, kindness, integrity, perseverance, courage, caring, and more.

Each school’s honoree received a framed award, the book “Oh the Places You Will Go,” and congratulations from all SBISD Trustees, to the cheers of family, friends and school leaders gathered in the Northbrook High auditorium.

At the pre-event reception, supported by Wells Fargo and the Spring Branch Education Foundation, the Character Without Question honorees enjoyed refreshments and had photos taken with their families.

Congratulations Cristopher!
