About the Northwest ISD Education Foundation

The Northwest ISD Education Foundation has partnerships with businesses across the Dallas-Fort Worth region. As one of the fastest growing school districts in the state, Northwest ISD has more than 24,000 students enrolled and attracts more than 1,400 new students each year. NISD serves families in 14 different communities, spanning 234 square miles and parts of three counties (Denton, Tarrant, Wise). The district operates three comprehensive high schools, an accelerated high school, six middle schools, 18 elementary schools, a special programs center and a community-based youth residential program.

The mission of Northwest ISD, in collaboration with students, families, communities, and global partners, is to engage in a culture of learning that prepares all students to confidently navigate their future. Our foundation’s objective 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, and involving the community in these efforts ensures every student can achieve success through meaningful learning experiences, innovative pathways, and personalized opportunities.

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.
