Education

By 2020, San Antonio has orchestrated one of the greatest turnarounds in education in the United States.

The Vision

San Antonio provides access to quality education for all students no matter where they live in our city.

The city is propelled forward by an approach where students learn, teachers thrive, parents engage, and residents contribute to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century in a way that rivals any city in America. This San Antonio approach to education develops residents who are thinkers, problem-solvers, and lifelong learners, prepared to tackle our society’s greatest challenges and proud to call San Antonio their home.
