With Dripping Springs being located near the state capital, families are offered all the opportunities of living near a larger city but still able to maintain that small community vibe, especially when it comes to school districts. Being ranked as the 6th best school district in Texas, Dripping Springs offers all the qualities any parent is looking for when sending their child off to school!
1. Outstanding Academics
While Dripping Springs may be known as “the Gateway to the Hill Country”, Dripping Springs ISD is known for their recognized excellence at the district level.

With the wide variety of academic programs including Advanced Academics, Fine Arts, rich-curriculum-based core subject courses and more, Dripping Springs ISD ensures that every student receives the maximum challenge and support they need to fulfill a bright future.
2. Small Town Feel
Living less than twenty miles from the state capital of Austin definitely has its perks. Between the small student population and the rural location, Dripping Springs ISD is able to maintain a more intimate and family feel environment that students can truly thrive in. With three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school, Dripping Springs ISD serves a little over 4,000 students in the area.

The main key to any successful school district is having a strong community and parental support system and Dripping Springs ISD is well aware of this importance. Between the Parent-Teacher Organization and the other community-wide programs set in place, the Dripping Springs Independent School District does a brilliant job of tying together the community of Dripping Springs and the educational system. This widespread commitment to education helps strengthen the support students need in order to reach their full potential.
