Muleshoe Independent School District is ranked as a Class 2A school with approximately 1512 students enrolled this year.  The Mule is the school mascot and school colors are black and white.  The system includes kindergarten/primary, elementary, junior high and high school.

2012 was a very successful year for the Muleshoe Mules! With the $30 million in facility construction complete, Muleshoe ISD now has state-of-the-art educational facilities of which students, staff , and the community can be very proud for years to come.  The Muleshoe ISD Board of Trustees recently authorized $100,000 to be used for a District Technology Grant to enhance the use of technology in teaching and learning in the classroom.  The community of Muleshoe is committed to providing a quality education for its children, and this construction project and technolgy upgrades are just a couple of examples of that commitment.

Last year, DeShazo Elementary and Dillman Elementary were rated RECOGNIZED by the Texas Education Agency.  In addition, Muleshoe High School was rated as one of THE BEST HIGH SCHOOLS IN AMERICA by the U.S. News & World Report. Muleshoe is proud of the well-rounded education students receive here and  believe that teaching life skills and character education are also part of their responsibility.

Muleshoe ISD has a budget of about $13 million, and has a total of 225 employees.  Our administrative cost are well below that of similar-sized districts, and our student/teacher ratio is about 12 to 1. Muleshoe ISD has received a SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENT rating from the Texas Education Agency for its financial condition for eight years in a row.

The Muleshoe ISD Board of Trustees established the MOST SCholarship award twelve years ago.  Every graduating senior now received $500 scholarship from MOST Scholarship Fund to go to any post secondary institution.  Muleshoe ISD appreciates the community and friends who contribute funds every year to support our students.
