Reaching the Whole Child
Supporting Military Children and Families
Randolph Field Independent School District
Randolph Field Independent School District is located on Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph in Universal City, Texas, and has proudly served military families for more than sixty years. Randolph Elementary School's song says it best: "Our parents serve the nation, our school reflects the best." Among the United States military, our district enjoys an excellent reputation for meeting the academic and social-emotional needs of children. Military-connected families trust Randolph Field Independent School District, as more than 65% of our families choose our schools even though they live in other school districts, often quite a distance away. Our district understands the unique pressures and demands faced by today's military families and we consistently go the extra mile to support our students and families.
Focus on Social-Emotional Learning
Randolph Field ISD is committed to reaching the whole child. Thanks to a history of dedication to excellence and supported by past Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) grants, Randolph Field ISD has ensured students meet success academically, and we continue to improve our practices around teaching and learning.
