In the early 1990s, a committee of Frisco ISD community members, parents, staff and Board members came together to determine a plan for the growth they knew was coming. The District’s only schools at the time were Acker, Rogers, Frisco Middle School and Frisco High. But with 75 square miles, it was clear that FISD could not remain a one high school community.

The group decided students would best be served in 9th through 12th grade high schools that were small enough so that students could know each other, could know their teachers, and could have the opportunity to participate in multiple activities and organizations. It was the foundation of the FISD mission to know every student by name and need.

That philosophy has been implemented through voter-approved bond programs beginning in 1993 that built Curtsinger Elementary and the first phase of the new Frisco High. A referendum in 1995 was followed by four more in an eight-year period (1998, 2000, 2003, 2006) for a combined total of $1.692 billion ($118 million, $298 million, $478 million and $798 million). These referendums received approval ratings of 95, 96, 89.4 percent, and 72 percent, and provided funding for 57 new schools.
