NISD CTE: Get Real.

At Northwest ISD CTE, we believe every student should get real: real academics, real skills, and a real high school experience unlike any other. By combining strong academics with robust career-minded education, we expand students' options and opportunities to make them truly future ready. Together with parents, business leaders, and the community, we challenge all students to aspire to their full potential, advance with rigorous academic and technical skills, and achieve a real-world competitive advantage.
