Frisco ISD has hit another milestone in its fast growth – the school district enrolled its 60,000th student this fall.  

FISD marked the occasion today at Pioneer Heritage Middle School, where District leaders stopped by to welcome lucky student number 60,000.

Sixth grader Alanna Mazeffa moved to Frisco last month from Pittsburgh, Pa., for her father’s job. She was presented with a T-shirt and several gifts donated by community partners.

Frisco ISD welcomed its 50,000th student three and half years ago and continues to add more new students per year than any other school district in the state. Now the fourth largest school district in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and 13th largest school district in Texas, FISD is projected to add between approximately 1,400-2,100 students each year for the next five years.

The District has added 1,400 students since the end of last school year, and enrollment totaled 60,142 as of October 15. Alanna earned the 60,000th student distinction on Sept. 18, but didn’t begin classes at Pioneer Heritage until earlier this month.

Previous enrollment milestones were reached in the following school years:

10,000: 2002-03 school year
20,000: 2005-06 school year
30,000: 2008-09 school year
40,000: 2011-12 school year
50,000: 2014-15 school year
