An Overview of Our District & Our Community
Encompassing 190 square miles, Hempstead ISD has one early childhood center (PK3 & PK4), one elementary school (K-5), one middle school (6-8), one high school (9-12), and an alternative learning center (9-12).
Hempstead is a community of approximately 7000 people located less than 50 miles northwest of Houston. The community has a friendly, small town atmosphere, yet all the conveniences of a big city are just a short drive away.
Nature has provided a beautiful landscape for the area that is particularly know for its abundance of wildflowers. An advantage to the school district is that Hempstead is still a town which supports local education with many of our students representing second, third and fourth generation famlies that have resided in Hempstead for many years.
The diverse population of the community also offers rich cultural experiences for students and staff alike.
