At their May 18 school board meeting, trustees unanimously approved Anthony Fontana as the next principal of Chisholm Trail Middle School, effective at the conclusion of the current school year.

Mr. Fontana brings a wealth of leadership experience in North Texas to the role, having served as principal of Lewisville High School’s Ben Harmon campus for freshmen and sophomores since 2015. Prior to his current position, he served as an assistant principal in Lewisville ISD for 13 years.

“I am eager to join the Chisholm Trail Bulldog community and get to know all of our students, staff and families,” Mr. Fontana said. “I want to create the best middle school experience for our students, and Bulldog pride will shine in and out of the classroom because that is who we are and what we do!”

In addition to his educational administration experience, Mr. Fontana served as a teacher and coach in Lewisville ISD. He has been a Secondary Assistant Principal of the Year in his district and has served on numerous councils and committees. He has led several campus and district professional development sessions and believes in providing staff with the necessary resources to promote student learning and achievement at the highest level.

Mr. Fontana earned his master’s degree in educational administration from the University of North Texas and his bachelor’s degree in education from Texas Lutheran University. His wife, Amanda, is the education and coaching teacher at Eaton High School.
