Student Programs

Aldine Education Foundation strives for student success both in Aldine ISD classrooms and beyond.

To strengthen education for all students, Aldine Education Foundation encourages educator excellence through support of the Teacher of the Year program. Additionally, we provide funds to implement unique classroom programs that enhance student learning through Innovative Teaching Grants. Programs that directly benefit students are:

Foundation Scholars

Aldine Education Foundation recognizes and rewards Aldine ISD high school students who achieve academic excellence. Those who maintain a 95 or greater average in ALL high school classes are recognized annually as Foundation Scholars at their high school awards night. We hope this encouragement strengthens their resolve to strive for excellence throughout their high school careers, making them prime candidates for our scholarship programs.
