District Information

DISTRICT INFORMATION
Seminole Independent School District is located in West Texas. The district is in an area referred to as the Permian Basin. Seminole ISD is a property wealthy district in Gaines County, 60 miles from Midland and Odessa, 85 miles from Lubbock and 30 miles from Hobbs, New Mexico. Our district is considered one of the most fortunate districts in the state of Texas due to the high volume of taxes generated through the county's oil production. 

Seminole ISD provides top quality education on six campuses for approximately 2800 PreK-12th students. The district includes the High School, Success Center, Jr. High, Elementary, Primary and F. J. Young campuses. 
 
 
ACADEMICS
Individual class size in the district does not exceed 22:1 ratio in PreK-5th  grade. We prefer no more than 20:1 in both elementary and secondary classes. Upper level classes in high school (english, physics, chemistry, calculus, etc.) are approximately 15:1.  Students are allowed to take concurrent classes in high school where they earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Students are able to accumulate 12-50 hours of college credit while in high school.

Competitive athletics is another focus of the district. We offer diverse sports for both boys and girls in grades 7-12.
