Superintendent's Message

Marla Guerra for MessageMessage from Superintendent

Welcome to South Texas Independent School District. I am honored to lead such a wonderful school district. STISD is unique in so many ways, but I believe what truly distinguishes us is our dedication to the students we serve.

At STISD, all students can learn. Our goal is to not only to prepare our students for the academic rigor of college, but to empower them with the character, discipline, and skills they need to also succeed in the professional workforce. The high-quality education students receive at STISD benefits them the rest of their lives.

At STISD, we are passionate about education. Education can break barriers and open doors where none existed. It has also the power to improve life not only for the person who possess it, but for people all around the world.

High school is just the beginning of a lifelong journey for teenagers. At STISD, we are proud to lead them in the direction of opportunity.


Marla M. Guerra, Ed.D.
