Needville Independent School District is a public school district based in Needville, Texas (USA).

The district has an area of 200 square miles (520 km2).[1] In addition to Needville, the district also serves the town of Fairchilds and the unincorporated communities of Guy and Long Point.


Needville ISD, originally Needville Rural High School District, was formed by the merger of the Big Creek, Brown, Concord, Forester, Guy, Marlow, Modena, Needville, Seiler, and Williams School districts on December 17, 1946; this made it the first consolidated school district to form in Fort Bend County. The district's first board meeting was held on January 9, 1947.[1]

Previously students from the community of Damon attended Needville High since Damon Independent School District did not have a high school. Damon ISD signed a contract with Needville ISD in 1949 so Damon ISD residents could go to school at Needville High.[1]

In 2009, the school district was rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[2]

The School also gained notoriety in 2018 when it threatened to suspend students for participating in protests or demonstrations against gun violence in schools, leading Constitutional law experts to call the policy a violation of student's First Amendment rights.
