Our Mission

Harris County Juvenile Probation Department is committed to the protection of the public, utilizing intervention strategies that are community-based, family-oriented and least restrictive while emphasizing responsibility and accountability of both parent and child.

Our Vision

The staff of the Education Services Division believes every child is a unique and special individual who can learn. It is our responsibility to serve as facilitators who nurture and develop every child's maximum academic, physical, social and emotional potential. We are committed to providing opportunities which will assist the students in making self-directed, realistic, and responsible decisions in our multi-cultural ever-changing world.

Ultimately, each student will benefit from the effort he/she exerts. It is critical for teachers, parents, guardians, and administrators to communicate openly and frequently to increase academic success.
