You’ve got to love a community that makes a conscious decision that smaller is better. Frisco ISD believes smaller schools offer a better learning environment and better teacher-and-student relationships. As a result, student test scores are well above the state and national average, with Frisco ISD ranked in the top 10% of Texas schools. Students are encouraged to pursue their interests in fine arts, athletics and clubs. And 90% plan to continue their education after high school.
There’s another benefit to smaller schools: more students have the opportunity to get involved in more ways. If a high school has 2,000 students instead of 5,000, your child has more opportunities to play on a team, act in a play or march in the band. Students also get more personal attention and more encouragement. Simply put, students thrive in Frisco ISD.
Frisco ISD was named one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People in 2012 by ING. In 2013, it was also named to the College Board’s AP District Honor Roll, and honored as one of the Best Communities for Music Education.
