HCISD is enhancing the middle school experience through a series of opportunities designed to shape students’ passions for future careers. In addition to providing STEM focused studies through the Project Lead the Way program, our middle schools instill a culture of college readiness through rigorous coursework. As students practice the balance of academics, arts, and athletics, they develop the qualities that allow them to thrive in a safe and supportive environment that values their social and emotional needs

In addition to two excellent comprehensive high schools, Harlingen High School and Harlingen High School South, HCISD’s three Schools of Choice offer students the full high school experience. Additional educational offerings include: college courses towards a bachelor’s degree through Early College High School, a medically-focused curriculum through Harlingen School of Health Professions, and an accelerated credit accumulation program through KEYS Academy.
