Fredericksburg Texas homes are located in the heart of Texas Hill Country about 75 miles west of Austin and 70 miles north of San Antonio TX homes.  The family friendly city of 11,000 residents offers a variety of schools for children of all ages, making it easy for parents to find the best fit for each child.  In addition to the public schools, several private schools boast beautiful campuses here among Texas Hill Country real estate.  

Fredericksburg Independent School District provides public education for 2,800 children ages PK-12.  As the largest educator in the area, the FISD serves families from Fredericksburg homes as well as students from the smaller outlying communities, including Stonewall.  Chosen from data based on test results, Fredericksburg High School is one of only a few Texas high schools to receive the Distinguished Great Schools Rating of 8 out of 10.  

In addition to academics and extracurricular programs, FISD offers Special Education Classes, Adult Education, Alternative School Grades 11-12, and Gillespie County Learning Center.  The Vocational Technical curriculum includes agricultural, auto mechanics, drafting, ROTC, and other selective course work.  When necessary, the District accommodates low-income and Spanish-speaking students.

Each school offers a unique environment and staff and offers special emphasis.  That may mean extra emphasis on character building, hands-on learning, or music.  Many schools offer classes for Gifted & Talented and/or AP courses and connections with the local campus of Texas Tech University.  Other local programs include before school and afterschool programs and special interests such as band, clubs, and sports.

Geological and historical points of interest surround the community enabling parents, teachers, and students to investigate and report on the fascinating local heritage and natural habitat.  Schools are fortunate to tap into a cornucopia of local talent in the beloved community.  The small-town atmosphere and camaraderie converge in enthusiastic volunteerism.  It looks like many retirees do not really want to retire fulltime  

Private schools in the city include:
  • Ambleside School of Fredericks K-12 (about 65 students)
  • Heritage School K-12 (about 200 students)
  • Fredericksburg Christian School (less than 50 students)
  • St. Mary's Catholic School K-8 (over 300 students)

Two additional private schools are located in neighboring communities: Notre Dame Catholic School and Hill Country Adventist School.

Excellent options for the younger pre-school children include Lorrie's Learning Center, ABC Christian Montessori, Kindernest Montessori School, Bethany Pre-School Day Care, and St. Mary's School.
