Schools are places or systems for learning or education and may be physical locations composed of a building or a campus that includes multiple buildings. Schools may also be virtual or online institutions that offer educational experiences and degrees. Schools are usually physical locations for children in grades 1-12, as well as kindergarten and pre-kindergarten (pre-K) classes.

In Texas, schools are regulated by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), which oversees the state's public education system for grades pre-K through 12. Texas schools can be traditional brick-and-mortar buildings, campuses with multiple buildings, or virtual online institutions. Public schools are required to follow state educational standards and assessments. The state also has charter schools, which are public schools that operate with more flexibility than traditional public schools. Private schools in Texas are not regulated by the TEA but must comply with certain state laws, including compulsory attendance laws and basic curriculum requirements. Additionally, Texas has a growing number of virtual schools and online educational programs, which are also subject to state regulation and must provide an educational experience that meets state standards.
