About the Northwest ISD Education Foundation

The Northwest Education Foundation has partnerships with businesses across the Dallas-Fort Worth region. As the third fastest-growing school district in the region, Northwest ISD has more than 22,000 students enrolled, and is estimated to continue growing at a pace greater than 1,000 new students per year. When the district is built out, it is anticipated more than 90,000 students will be enrolled in Northwest ISD.

Northwest ISD serves families in 14 different communities, spanning 234 square miles and parts of three counties (Denton, Tarrant and Wise). The district operates three comprehensive high schools, an accelerated high school, five middle schools, 17 elementary schools, a special programs center and a youth residential program. Our foundation’s goal is to provide resources to enable students and teachers to work at their highest potential, rewarding those teachers for their innovative efforts and exemplary teaching. 

Quality schools are essential to the strength and advancement of a community. Involving the community in these efforts assures a quality education for leaders and workers of tomorrow. An important goal of the foundation is to form strong partnerships with leaders in the Northwest community. A partnership greatly enhances the quality of education in schools by bringing the talents and resources of the business community into the classroom. Each partnership is based on the needs of the school and the resources of the partnering organization.
