Located in the northwest area of the DFW metroplex, Northwest Independent School District 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 and 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 17 elementary schools, five middle schools, three comprehensive high schools and one accelerated high school.
With the addition of an estimated 1,200 students during summer months and continued growth, total student enrollment now exceeds 21,000. 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.
