Cameron Science
An eye on science: A Cameron ES student and her lab partner closely study a glass of water to determine the solubility of a substance they added to the mix. Learning at Cameron now takes place in a fully equipped science lab thanks to upgrades included in $12.3 million worth of renovations to the East Side campus under the voter-approved Bond 2010.

Educating children to their fullest potential

SAISD's century-old legacy of setting high standards for all is as deeply rooted as is our commitment to continuing that proud tradition for generations. Through personalized instruction, exciting real-world activities and the most effective teaching strategies, SAISD instills in students the knowledge and skills necessary to reach their fullest potential and become successful citizens.

We offer parents school choice, allowing them to select the type of academic environment that best fits their child's learning style. Parents may choose from a more traditional setting or magnet programs and internal charters that specialize in a particular theme or subject matter.

Our approximately 54,000 students attend:
  • Eight traditional high schools, grades 9–12
  • One early college high school and one stand-alone magnet school
  • One all-girls 6–12 grade campus
  • 16 magnet programs at secondary schools
  • 14 middle schools, grades 6–8, including four internal charter academies
  • 52 elementaries, grades pre-kinder through 5, including three internal charter academies
  • Five pre-kinder to 8 or kinder–8 academies, including four internal charters
  • Four non-traditional schools

Incoming juniors have been busy this summer with a variety of learning opportunities, including the Forensic Science Academy. Students strengthened their science skills through engaging activities related to crime-scene investigation.
