Northwest Independent School District

Located in the northwest area of the DFW metroplex, Northwest Independent School District (ISD) has a vision of becoming the best and most sought-after school district where every student is future ready: 

  • Ready for college
  • Ready for the global workplace
  • Ready for personal success

At 234 square miles, Northwest ISD is one of the largest school districts in the area and spans three counties (Tarrant, Denton, and Wise) and 14 municipalities. NISD operates 18 elementary schools, six middle schools, three comprehensive high schools and one accelerated high school.

Continued Growth

With the addition of an estimated 1,200 students during summer months and continued growth, total student enrollment now exceeds 24,000. The district’s growth is a result of several factors: the size of the school district; the number of active housing developments; and the attractive housing, retail, and business industries in the immediate area.
