YOU'RE FAMILY IN NEW BRAUNFELS.

Education

Comal County and the City of New Braunfels have two school districts: New Braunfels ISD is primarily within the city limits and Comal Independent School District which spans 589 miles of central Texas, including parts of five central Texas counties: Comal, Bexar, Hays, Kendall, and Guadalupe.

CISD has 12 elementary schools, five middle schools, and three high schools in the district and is rated as a Recognized school district by the Texas Education Agency. NBISD has 11 total schools within the district and rated as an academically accepted school district.

To keep pace with the explosive population growth in the area, both CISD and NBISD have passed bond issues to build and expand schools, upgrade technology and purchase land for future schools. On May 9, 2015, voters in the Comal Independent School District approved a nearly $150 million bond package. The $147.7 million bond is based on the district’s plan to address growing enrollment in middle schools, along with capital projects at existing facilities and student safety and security. An estimated $94 million of the bond package will go toward the construction of two new middle schools. Since 1999, NBISD voters have approved $117 million worth of bonds and is considering a bond election in November 2015 that could total as much as 130-million dollars.

Imagine Google Earth street view, but from the center of the surface of the Guadalupe River. A new virtual river navigation tool allows people to explore the Guadalupe River, from Canyon Dam to downtown New Braunfels, directly from their smart phone, tablet, or computer. The tool includes a tagging system for specific sites along the river, so users can find and mark favorite areas and location-specific tips for tubing, fishing, and paddling. The application, created through a partnership between Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Inland Fisheries, the Water Oriented District of Comal County, and the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited, is available through the FishViews water navigation program at the link below. FishViews has also mapped the Comal River, Blanco River, San Marcos River, and Spring Lake. tours.fishviews.com/public/guadalupe-river#0
