Campus Description: The Veribest ISD Board of Trustees is seeking an exceptional educational leader dedicated to student outcomes to serve as the Superintendent of Schools. The Veribest Board of Trustees are proud of the accomplishments of the students and staff and are searching for a decisive leader who can collaborate with the educational community to build upon past successes and create new opportunities for the students of Veribest ISD.

The Veribest Independent School District:
Veribest School District #10 was established on July 2, 1889. The School district was originally named the Veribest-Byrd School District. The small community of Byrd was northeast of the site of present Veribest near Farm Road 380 in eastern Tom Green County. George Jefferson Byrd,the founder of the Byrd community, who came to Tom Green County in 1877,donated the land for the school that was named for him. The Byrd school was consolidated with the Veribest school to form the Veribest-Byrdschool now in the town of Veribest. In the 1980s a large, well-built storm cellar was all that remained at the Byrd site. Over time, the Veribest-Byrd School name gradually became the Veribest School District as the Byrd and Mullins communities dissolved. In 2005 Veribest had a United Methodist church and a Baptist church, both involved in community outreach to local dairy workers. The school offered classes from pre-kindergarten through the eighth grade. The community still reported forty inhabitants, and contained seven businesses.

The school that exists today was built in 1927. Since then, the school has been remodeled and updated several times to meet the needs of the students.Prior to Veribest having a high school, our students would graduate 8th grade and move on to Wall High School for graduation as seniors. Approximately 5 years prior to the new Veribest High School completion, Wall High School stopped taking our secondary students because they were fast approaching the "2A-3A" barrier and didn't want to cross it at the time. As a result, Paint Rock ISD took the contract for our students, and carried them through High School graduation until our new facilities opened for the 1998-1999 Secondary classes.

In 1996, the school board voted to add a high school, and in 1999-2000, the district graduated its first senior class. Veribest ISD's total enrollment for 2000-01 was 272 students. Of that population, approximately 30.5 percent of the students were economically disadvantaged.
