Humble ISD covers a 90+ square mile area and includes the communities of Humble, Atascocita, Kingwood, Fall Creek, Eagle Springs, among others. Located about 17 miles northeast of downtown Houston and just minutes away from George Bush Intercontinental Airport, the suburban area is largely residential. However, a major mall and plenty of nearby stores and restaurants are convenient to those who prefer to stay close to home.
The Humble ISD community has enjoyed a long and successful commitment to excellence in Texas education, owing in part to the support of our families and business partners. A perfect example of this close and dynamic relationship is the Humble ISD Education Foundation, created in 1999 with $46,000 in donations. Today, through the help of generous supporters, more than $6.74 million in funds has been raised to provide the innovative and enriching projects taking place in our classrooms every day. A crowning achievement, the Administaff Humble ISD Observatory, houses four telescopes, a retractable roof, a teaching classroom and Internet capability. Humble ISD is one of a very few school districts in the United States to have its own observatory.
An exceptionally large number of parents support teachers by volunteering their time at our schools, and the Humble Council of PTAs plays a vital role in the success of our students. All campuses have active PTA/PTO or PTSA organizations and actively engaged booster clubs for sports and fine arts groups. Parents are encouraged to be actively involved in their children's education. As our mission states, our purpose, in partnership with families and community, is to develop each child intellectually, artistically, emotionally, physically, and socially so that all students are life-long learners, complex thinkers, responsible global citizens and effective communicators.

A quick overview of some of the special learning opportunities offered in Humble ISD include:
One of the fastest growing districts in the state, Humble has been in an aggressive building program for a number of years. Its attractive, well-maintained elementary, middle and high school campuses are primarily closed concept with flexibility for team teaching activities. Most students are assigned to schools within their neighborhoods.
Bond funds provided for the construction of two new comprehensive high schools, total renovation of the district's flagship high schools, two middle schools, and five elementary schools. High schools are state-of-the-art facilities designed to promote small learning communities. The goal is to build stronger relationships, keep track of learning, have available advising, and promote affective learning.
Turner Stadium, which serves as the home stadium for all five comprehensive high schools in Humble ISD, has been completely renovated, and hosted the 2016 Junior Olympics track and field events.
