Alief ISD News and Recognitions

Alief ISD has been named a Top Workplace for the third consecutive year by Houston Chronicle.

This marks the third year in a row that Alief ISD has made the top 25 top workplaces from more than 150 large companies or organizations in the Houston area.


Thank you to our 6,500 employees for making Alief ISD the best place to work.

Hastings High School graduate Simon Silva won first place in the Sports Action Photo category in the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) 2018 Photo of the Year Contest.

Silva, who graduated last school year, was recognized for outstanding photojournalism in a national competition. The recognition was announced at the National High School Journalism Convention.

If the class wins with the most votes in Region 4, Corzo will receive an iPad, and Boone will win $1,000 to support drug prevention initiatives. To vote:
