Cibolo is a city in Guadalupe County in the U.S. state of Texas. It is part of the San Antonio–New Braunfels Metropolitan Statistical Area. Cibolo was officially established in 1965.
Before the first European settlers arrived, the Comanche as well as several other Indian tribes lived in Cibolo. The name "Cibolo" means "buffalo" in an Indian language. first established when the Southern Pacific Railroad cut through the area en route to major cities like Houston and San Antonio. Over time, Cibolo developed into the city it is today. 
The town gained a level of national awareness in December of 2013, because of the publicized medical case of a 12-year-old girl named Alexis Shapiro (identified, despite her age and other laws, because of the media publicity), whose family resides in the town, suffered from a benign brain lesion called a craniopharyngioma, which affects approximately 1 child out of 1 million. The neurosurgery to remove her tumor could be considered a success, because it did remove the lesion, but in the process it caused a severe side effect, hypothalamic obesity, where the affected region of the brain acts starved and causes intense and random food cravings, despite the condition of fullness of the gastrointestinal tract. The military, which provides her and her father's medical coverage through TRICARE, is reluctant, in the absence of an appeal, to cover bariatric surgery (gastric bypass) at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, a decidedly invasive operation, until Alexis is 18 and bone and other growth has ceased. She is at risk of developing early-onset Type 2 diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease if her current weight of 200 pounds is not soon appreciably reversed. Area individuals and agencies have quickly raised $68,000- enough to cover the surgery but not necessarily the recovery and long-term care. On Saturday, January 4, 2013, a news release stated that the TRICARE military insurance program had agreed to reverse its earlier decision and cover the operation's costs, meaning the surgery at Cincinnati Children's could be scheduled within eight weeks. Now, more than $78,000 has been raised to help with the operation costs (especially those not covered by insurance), as well as pre- and post-operative care and rehabilitation, and transport from Texas to Ohio and back. Any excess funds will go toward other children with similar issues.
The City of Cibolo is served by the Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District (SCUCISD).
