Fort Davis Independent School District is a public school district based in the community of Fort Davis in unincorporated Jeff Davis County, Texas (USA).

Fort Davis, like other Texas communities, formerly had racially segregated schools,[3] with the "white" school on the site of the present-day Fort Davis High School. The "Mexican school" was located at the current site of Dirks-Anderson Elementary School in Fort Davis.

In 2009, the school district was rated "academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency.[4]
