Texas State education law requires that all children ages 5 years through Grade 12 be enrolled in school. Parents can choose to enroll their children in public schools or in private schools. Public schools are free to attend, and most children in Bryan/College Station go to public schools.
The Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau has a list of all schools that serve the area: http://www.visitaggieland.com/bryan-college-station/schools/
Area public schools belong to either the Bryan Independent School District (BISD) or the College Station Independent School District (CSISD). Harmony Science Academy is a special type of public school called a Charter School, and draws students from all over Brazos County. (In Texas, a county is a larger administrative and political unit that typically includes several communities).
Public schools start at Kindergarten grade (age 5) and go through 12th grade (High School). Some school locations also offer part-time Pre-Kindergarten classes for children age 4.
If you are coming to the U.S. with school-age children, it is best to contact the school/school system ahead of time to learn what information will be needed or helpful at the time you are enrolling your child in school.
It will be best for your child if he or she can join at the beginning of the school year, but if this is not feasible, your child’s school will welcome a new student at any time during the school year.
