Tomball Independent School District



Tomball ISD educates students to become responsible, productive citizens by providing innovative, individually rigorous, and personally valuable educational experiences. 


Tomball ISD students will lead in creating the future. 

Tomball ISD believes "character counts" inside and outside of the classroom. We understand the importance of character development in preparing our students for a successful future. In 2023, Tomball ISD created the CAREER framework for character education in grades 7-12. CAREER stands for Character, Accountability, Responsibility, Excellence, Effort, and Respect. The CAREER framework is 100% aligned to the Texas Positive Character Trait Standards. Senate Bill (SB) 123, enacted by the 87th Texas Legislature, requires every district in Texas to implement a character education program.

Aligned with our mission and vision of educating students to become responsible and productive citizens who will lead in creating the future, as well as the Texas Education Agency's Positive Character Traits, the CAREER Framework embodies our commitment to equipping our students with the essential skills needed for any CAREER they choose.



We believe that strong character is the foundation for success. Through our character education programs, we strive to instill in our students job skills such as integrity, honesty, and resilience. 



We empower our students to take ownership of their actions and decisions. We teach them to set goals, manage their time effectively, and take responsibility for their learning. By fostering a sense of accountability, we prepare our students to be proactive, independent thinkers, and problem-solvers in any CAREER they choose.


We emphasize the importance of understanding the concepts of responsibility, and how personal actions and self-management skills demonstrate responsibility.



We believe in the pursuit of excellence in all areas of life. Our rigorous academic programs challenge students to reach their full potential and strive for greatness. We foster a growth mindset, encouraging our students to embrace challenges, persevere through setbacks, and constantly seek improvement.


We understand that success requires hard work and dedication. We inspire our students to give their best effort in everything they do, whether it's academics, athletics, or extracurricular activities. We teach them the value of perseverance, resilience, and a strong work ethic, preparing them for the challenges they may face in their chosen CAREER.


We foster the understanding that good citizenship requires having concern for the common good of the community; having respect for authority, law, justice, and the rights of others; being free from prejudice, having gratitude and school pride; being courteous, fair, and patriotic.


Tomball ISD ensures that our students not only excel academically but also develop the essential skills and character traits necessary for their future CAREER. We are committed to nurturing well-rounded individuals who will make a positive impact in their professions and communities.

The following courses have been cross-walked and have earned the TISD CAREER seal for having positive character traits/jobs skills embedded in their Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). TISD’s curriculum for CAREER courses are being developed with explicit activities and lessons to teach, model, and nurture these traits in our students.
