Wimberley is designated 4A classification among Texas schools which has to do with enrollment totals in a school district. For out of staters classification size in Texas ranges from 6A (largest) to 1A (smallest) . Wimberley is blessed to have great academics including an incredible string of appearances at the state UIL state theater competition to individual academic championships to two state championship in football to many state championships in volleyball. I have had children go through the Wimberley school system and I was very pleased with the wide array of opportunities that are offered to our students.
