Welcome to the Prairie….
Welcome to Tarkington Independent School District and thank you for visiting our website. We are home to approximately 1,700 students that are housed on four separate campuses located in Liberty County.
It is our goal to establish a well-rounded educational environment that provides choices and options to meet the needs of all children. Tarkington ISD has a strong commitment to academic excellence along with success in extracurricular activities. The ultimate responsibility of Tarkington Independent School District is to provide a quality education to all students. We must focus on communication, innovation, technology and creativity to assist our students to be globally competitive. This education will be provided in a safe environment that is conducive to learning in order for all students to be successful.
We should celebrate our accomplishments but never settle for our present achievement levels. Our greatest resource is the community and their willingness to be a part of the education process for all students in Tarkington ISD. Everyone plays a key role in the learning process on the prairie. We welcome participation from parents, grandparents and community members. We have outstanding administrators, teachers and paraprofessionals that are ready, willing and eager to asist you. Our central office staff, maintenance workers, transportation department, custodians and food service employees do a fine job and are vital parts in the everyday process of educating our children.
Personally, I have 33 years of successful experience in public education, all of which have been accumulated in the great state of Texas. At Tarkington ISD, we have extremely high expectations for each student and will be dedicated to continuous improvement in all facets of the educational process.
On behalf of the entire school district, we want to thank you for entrusting your children to us. I am confident that, in partnership with our parents and community members, the staff of Tarkington ISD will successfully provide an excellent education for all students.
I also want to thank the Board of Trustees for giving me the opportunity to lead such an outstanding school district. My wife and I are proud to call Tarkington our home.
Getcha’ Horns Up!
