It is with great pride that I represent the Fabens Independent School District, one of the finest educational institutions in the Region 19 Educational Service Center Region. On behalf of approximately 2,300 students and nearly 400 employees that make up our super school district, I want to welcome you to our FISD website. We are proud of our "Wildcat" community.
Fabens ISD was the first district in Region 19 to be "Exemplary" for academic performance as designated by the Texas Education Agency. We are certainly proud of the work our teachers, school leaders and students have accomplished over the years. This standard of academic excellence continues to be our goal as we focus on high-quality programs for students, parents and employees to ensure success in everything we do.
Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King's famous "I have a dream" speech, it is our responsibility to provide the best learning opportunities for all our children to prepare them to fulfill their dreams. We share this dream with all parents who are their child's first and most important teacher. As we lead by example, it is our hope that we prepare all of our students to be successful, lifelong, global learners. Perhaps Albert Schweitzer said it best when he said: "Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing."
I am honored to be part of Team Fabens ISD and to have our great community support as we strive to lead and inspire our children to be tomorrow's leaders. I am confident that our district will continue to be one of the best districts in the state of Texas.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please let me know how we may be of service to you and your family.
Eldefonso "Poncho" Garcia
Fabens ISD Superintendent
