Go Yellowjackets!

Ricardo Independent School District is a small rural district located less than 150 miles north of the Mexican border that was founded in the early 1900’s.  At the time of its founding, it served widely scattered farm children and children whose parents worked along the railroad.  As time passed, a larger town with a population of almost 30,000 developed to our north, and Ricardo continues to serve a largely rural community.   Over the last 100 years we have grown from a small unsophisticated district to a district serving a PK through 8th grade student population of 650 to 700.  We are a 100% Google Apps For Education district incorporating mobile carts in our classrooms. Grades 2nd through 8th use chromebooks and our PK through 1st grades have access to a computer lab with 26 computers.  Each classroom teacher has a laptop, an interactive whiteboard, and a document camera. Our teachers collaboratively educate our students using technology through Google apps, instructional websites, and computer software. We have an award winning athletic program, and support strong UIL and Destination Imagination teams.  Our students feed into several area high schools;  Riviera, H.M. King, Bishop, and Santa Gertrudis Academy.
