The New Caney Independent School District is the fourth fastest growing district in the state and has been the fastest growing district in the Houston area since 2011. It is located approximately 30 miles northeast of Houston, serving residents in the Porter, New Caney, Kingwood, and Conroe communities.
The district houses more than 15,000 students in nine elementary schools (pre- kindergarten – grade 5), four middle schools (grades 6 – 8), two high schools (grades9 – 12), one early college high school (grades 9 – 12), and one alternative education center (kindergarten – grade 12). The district encompasses more than 90 square miles. Located in East Montgomery County, the area is experiencing rapid growth in housing and business development due to the recent completion of the Grand Parkway connecting U.S. Hwy. 59 with I-45.
The district launched the 1:Vision initiative equalizing access to technology for all students. Students in grades 6 – 12 are issued personal Chromebooks (laptops) while students in grades 3 – 5 have 1-to-1 classroom sets. Pre-kindergarten through 2nd grade have a cart of Chromebooks for each grade level.
Dual language classes are offered at eight elementary campuses where half of the class is taught in English, and half is taught in Spanish. The district is currently constructing a UIL regulation aquatics center for swimming competitions, a permanent early college campus and has purchased land for a third high school. The district is committed to attracting and retaining the best teachers by offering some of the most highly competitive salaries in the Houston area.
On-site Tavola Elementary School is now open.
