Three Boerne ISD Elementary Schools Nominated for National Award

CKHFebruary 6, 2024- The Boerne Independent School District is proud to announce that Curington Elementary, Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary, and Herff Elementary have been selected by The Flippen Group as Capturing Kids’ Hearts National Showcase Schools nominees for the 2023-24 school year. The winning schools will be announced at the end of April.


“To once again have three schools selected as National Showcase School nominees is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the teachers and staff at Curington, Fair Oaks Ranch, and Heff,” said Boerne ISD Superintendent Dr. Kristin Craft. “Each campus has shaped its own unique culture, which creates the perfect learning environment for our students. I thank the campus administration, teachers and staff, for going above and beyond for our students and families.”


Boerne Elementary first opened its doors in 1976, and was named Curington Elementary in 1986. CES has earned the National Showcase School distinction three years in a row.


Fair Oaks Ranch Elementary, which has been named a National Showcase School five years in a row, first opened in 1995 and serves students who reside in parts of Kendall, Comal, and Bexar counties.


Herff is one of BISD’s newest schools, having opened in 2019. They were named a National Showcase School for the first time last year. 

National Showcase Schools are chosen annually through a rigorous selection process that includes measuring key performance indicators, gathering campus data, and surveying staff and students. The results represent the implementation of CKH processes as well as the culture and climate on each campus. Capturing Kids’ Hearts celebrates campuses where educators are exceeding expectations and creating an environment where students feel safe, connected, and eager to learn.
