The El Paso area has a variety of educational opportunities to address the needs of military families arriving at Fort Bliss. These opportunities are provided by nine public school districts in the El Paso area. An established relationship between Fort Bliss and area school districts exists through formal venues. All nine El Paso School Districts in the El Paso area entered into the Secondary Education Transition Study (SETS) Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) in 2001. Fort Bliss has added support to an additional school district, Gadsden ISD in the New Mexico area, due to continued increase in the number of Military families choosing to reside in New Mexico.

Opportunity to attend various schools is dependent upon home address, where you reside will designate what school your child will attend. Opportunities to attend other schools-districts exist for Military families based on space availability.

Geographically the Fort Bliss Military Post is within the El Paso ISD School boundaries with one high school and four elementary schools located on federal property.

  • Twenty eight Texas accredited non-public schools to include Parochial and Private schools
  • Ten Charter schools
  • There are two active Home School organizations supporting area families choosing this option
  • Child Youth and School Services (CYSS) facilities are conveniently located across from several elementary schools on Post. Transportation to and from designated off Post schools is provided by CYSS to their facilities. Please contact Parent Central Services at (915) 568-4374 to register your child and determine if this service is provided at your school.
