Dr. Alexandro M. Flores
Welcome to Palacios ISD, Home of the Mighty Sharks and Sharkettes! I am truly humbled and honored for the opportunity to serve as the Superintendent of Schools for the Palacios Independent School District where our motto of “Keeping Students First” rings true. Our commitment to the students of this great community remains steadfast and can be evidenced through our vision which is focused on preparing every student for a successful future. Whether heading off to a college or university of their choice, becoming contributing members to society in the workforce, or joining any of our fine military branches, our students will attain the essential values and skills necessary to define success for themselves through the diligence, care, and commitment of faculty and staff who are deeply invested in their individual growth, development, and ultimate success. The global opportunities available for our students today are greater than ever before and it is our sincere hope and desire that whether you are a parent, employee or community member, you will partner with us in realizing our vision so that our students become effectively prepared to maximize every avenue and opportunity available to them. If it “takes a village to raise a child”, then together we can transform the lives of our children by providing the best quality education that Palacios ISD has to offer and that they rightfully deserve.
