Here at Santa Rita Ranch, we believe that education is the foundation of our children’s future, and we know how important good schools are to a lifetime of growth and success. That’s why we place such a high priority on partnering with and supporting the very best schools for our residents and their children. We’re elated to be zoned within two excellent school districts here in the Texas Hill Country, one of which is the Georgetown Independent School District (GISD).

Georgetown ISD ratings and what they mean
The vision statement for Georgetown ISD says that it’s home to the “most inspired students, served by the most empowered leaders.” Maybe that’s why Georgetown ISD routinely receives excellent ratings.
At Santa Rita Ranch, we understand the value and importance of learning, whether it’s in the classroom or from the land. We know that the families who call the Ranch home want the very best for their kids. That’s why it’s so important for us to partner with the best schools available and to help support those schools – and our students – to help them succeed!
Special classes and programs at Georgetown ISD
From Wolf Ranch Elementary to alternative campuses to East View High, all the schools in the Georgetown Independent School District feature notable school programs and special classes to help enhance the overall educational experience for all children. Whether your child is interested in becoming involved in student government, participating in speech and debate, going out for clubs and athletics, or treading the boards in theater programs, there’s something at Georgetown ISD to help every student thrive.
Art programs help students find unique ways to express themselves, foreign languages help to broaden their horizons, driver’s education teaches them skills that will be valuable as they move out into the world, culinary arts can show them the joy of cooking and help promote good nutrition, and college prep courses help get them ready for the next stage of their education journey.
Of course, a student’s experience is only as good as the support they have at home, and Georgetown Independent School District also helps parents make the most of their child’s education through the ParentU program, which offers support and resources to help keep parents involved and meet the needs of the whole family.
