Career and Technical Education
Career and technical education (CTE), is an integral component of FBISD curriculum. CTE offers students a real world alternative to classroom theory by blending classroom theory with practical knowledge and skills acquired outside the classroom setting. CTE often includes new technologies, hands-on activities, real world settings as well as guest speakers, internships or job shadowing experiences.
Engineering training covers an expansive spectrum of fields and industries, such as fashion design, filmmaking, automotive technology, food science, business management and cosmetology. Some programs offer industry-recognized certificates or licensures upon completion of rigorous courses.
Career-and-tech-ed students often complete high school more quickly than other students and are more likely to enroll in college. Furthermore, these students tend to find jobs and make good money quickly; many even go on to a successful career or continue their education by enrolling at community college, technical school, four year college or university and even starting their own businesses!
Fine arts refers to traditional forms such as painting, sculpture and drawing as well as modern media like video and film. Artwork considered fine art must have clear artistic intent rather than utilitarian purposes.

Small class sizes and spacious studios enable students to experience both traditional and cutting-edge art-making processes and mediums for expression; students are encouraged to explore multiple 2D and 3D mediums while developing lifelong skills that will continue beyond graduation.
Students also learn to work together in music ensembles, with our Elementary Honor Choir being an auditioned, selected music group that performs early in the spring semester. Our Elementary Music Curriculum strives to offer sequential musical learning that allows all children to express themselves creatively while developing critical thinking skills and fostering an appreciation of music that will endure for life.
