Frisco Independent School District is one of the fastest growing public school districts in the nation with new students joining us every day from across Texas, the nation and the world. Many families choose to call Frisco ISD home due to our outstanding reputation for academic excellence, innovative programs and wealth of extracurricular opportunities and experiences.
At the heart of our success is a small-schools model that has guided the District through three decades of explosive enrollment growth. With the support of parents and the community, leaders remain committed to creating small, personalized learning environments, as evidenced by our mission to know every student by name and need. This philosophy drives our day-to-day efforts to understand each child’s unique circumstances, his or her strengths and weaknesses and the role we must play to ensure each student reaches his or her full potential.
It is also reflected in the deliberate manner in which we build and configure our schools. Elementary schools serve 700-plus students in grades K-5, middle schools serve 800-1,000 students in grades 6-8 and high schools serve up to 2,100 students in grades 9-12. (New high schools open with fewer grade levels and add one grade level a year until they serve grades 9-12.)
Frisco ISD currently enrolls more than 56,000 students in 9 high schools, 16 middle schools, 40 elementary schools and 3 special programs schools. The 2014 bond program will provide funds for more facilities to meet the needs of up to 66,000 students.
FISD is located about 30 miles north of Dallas, Texas, and encompasses 75 square miles in Collin and Denton counties, including most of the City of Frisco and portions of neighboring Plano, McKinney and Little Elm.
