Your interest in a professional career with Boles Independent School District is appreciated. Our district has long been recognized for its emphasis on instructional excellence but always within the student’s limit of understanding and rate of cognitive development. Boles ISD strives to provide daily experiences that foster an appreciation of individual rights, privileges, obligations, and responsibilities as a member of society. The district is composed of three schools which are elementary (Pre-K through 4) , middle school (5 through 8) and high school (9 through 12).
All three campuses are situated at one location. The elementary school has approximately 174 students. The middle school has about 159 students and the high school has approximately 174 students. The majority of students are transfers from various area school districts, while approximately 100 students reside within our district. The district has experienced a large student population increase over the last several years. In 1996, the Gena Mae Wishard Building was opened (a 45,000 sq. ft. H.S. complex). Then in 2002, the Johnny Mailes Building (a 20,000 sq. ft. middle school facility) was opened to accommodate this growth. In 2007, the 16,000 sq. ft. gymnasium was constructed. The gymnasium was named in honor of Robert Boyd, a longtime board member.
The campus has Fiber Optic Networking allowing access to the Internet and the capability to extend that service to the Boles Children’s Home. Thus, the community is linked to the school via fiber. Also, the district offers distance education courses and training through Region X Educational Service Center. The district is linked directly via T-1 to Texas A&M – Commerce and several other school districts through ET-LINC.
