Leander ISD teachers and support staff focus on engaging and inspiring students for achievement and lifelong success. We are a fast-growth district, adding 1,000 students every year, serving families in the cities of Austin, Cedar Park and Leander. LISD educates more than 42,000 students at its 44 campuses. The district encompasses nearly 200 square miles.


The #1LISD community cultivates each student individually to produce the most sought-after creators of our future world.


We will cultivate each individual student by:

  • Knowing and appreciating them
  • Creating a safe and supportive environment to nurture their personal growth
  • Partnering with each family

Our Guiding Documents — the Graduate Profile, the 10 Ethical PrinciplesThe Leander Way and the Learning Model — are the foundation of who we are and ensure that we maintain a great learning environment for all students.

Core Beliefs

As a public school organization, we hold these truths as our core beliefs:  

  • Each and every student is at the heart of our decisions. This requires a focus on students and all elements that impact their overall student experience in order for them to reach their maximum potential.
  • LISD life-changers (each and every staff member) should be empowered so they can inspire our students to own their learning.
  • Our LISD family, which includes our students and their families, life-changers, board, and community members, thrives when we ensure a welcoming, safe, and caring environment in which we treat one another with integrity, respect, fairness, and acceptance while appreciating our differences.
  • A deliberate and intentional focus on relevant and deeper learning for each student will optimize individual outcomes and personal growth.
  • Developing and maintaining meaningful, collaborative relationships between all our LISD family is vital for a whole child, student-driven experience.
