At San Antonio Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby. Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a link to the San Antonio Independent School District website.

San Antonio Independent School District

Mission Statement

The mission of the San Antonio Independent School District is to graduate all students as responsible citizens with the academic and social preparation to pursue higher education, join the military, or enter the work force.

SAISD Fundamental Beliefs:
  1. Excellence and equity in student performance are achievable for all students. We believe that every child can and will learn in an educational setting committed to high expectations for all.
     
  2. No child will be left behind. We believe that when a child fails to learn, it is the system that fails - not the child. Each campus must assume ownership and accept accountability for the learning outcomes of each and every child.
     
  3. The teacher is the program. The hallmark of a good educational system is measured by the quality of the people who deliver instruction. No program, no matter how innovative, well researched, or costly, will succeed without the efforts of an effective, caring teaching staff.
     
  4. People support what they help create. Quality education is a collaborative process among leaders and learners where teachers, parents, students, the community and administration are individually valued and where they jointly share responsibilities for making decisions that improve educational opportunities for all children.
     
  5. Change comes from within. Successful change comes about when each person is committed to a common vision and mutually-shared beliefs that guide the behavior of the entire organization. Each District stakeholder-- those within the school family and those in the extended school family -- must believe and exhibit the tenets that form the foundation of SAISD's core values.
