Mission CISD has been leading the way in college and career readiness in Western Hidalgo County for many years. Plus, we offer children an education and enrichment that no area charter school or private school can match. Each of our schools has been named among the "Healthiest Schools in America" by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Our Mission Collegiate High School has been named one of the best high schools in the country by U.S. News and World Report, two years in a row.
