So, what's all the fuss about the Wall Community that makes people DEMAND the house they buy be in the Wall ISD? Well, here are some demographics about the community that may help answer the "WHY".

The Wall Independent School District currently has approximately 1100 students enrolled. The Wall Hawks have a strong tradition of excellence both in sports and academics making it one of the best school districts in the State of Texas.
