About Sam Rayburn Elementary

Sam Rayburn ISD originated in 1964, with the consolidation of the North Fannin and Telephone Schools. The land the school sits on was donated by Mr. & Mrs. Sydney Steele. Currently, Sam Rayburn Elementary has approximately 320 students enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.

Despite its rural location, our campus remains a leader of academic achievement in northeast Texas. We have been rated Exemplary by the Texas Education Agency, as well as received the Gold Performance Acknowledgement in Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. Sam Rayburn ISD is equipped with a wonderful library full of new materials and resources that rivals those of larger districts. All students have access to the latest technology tools which include interactive projectors,  a computer lab full of Apple computers, as well as 1:1 ipads or chromebooks in every classroom. Students attending Sam Rayburn ISD are served by a highly motivated faculty and administration that is dedicated to providing the highest quality of education available.
