Frisco ISD Recognized for Leadership in the Visual Arts

Frisco ISD is one of only 20 school districts in Texas to receive a new award from the Texas Art Education Association. The District of Distinction Award recognizes districts that have provided outstanding leadership in promoting the arts in the community while also integrating visual arts across the curriculum. Around the District, collaboration between visual arts teachers and teachers of other subjects helps fine arts reach a large and diverse group of students. This continually inspires creativity and takes learning to new levels.


Advanced Placement (AP) Program Continues to Grow

Nearly half of the Frisco ISD graduating Class of 2019 earned a score of 3 or higher on at least one Advanced Placement (AP) exam during their high school career. Approximately 75% of exams taken in FISD this spring earned a score of 3,4 or 5, making students eligible for college credit. The District encourages all eligible students to challenge themselves through AP coursework and further develop the writing, problem-solving and study skills necessary for future success.
