Denton ISD: ‘A fast-growing community.’
Located at the top of the ``golden triangle’’ of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Denton ISD is the second-fastest growing school district in North Texas. Denton’s unique ``small town community’’ environment separates it from the growing, larger suburban school districts within the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
With two universities and a community college - University of North Texas, Texas Woman's University and North Central Texas College - within its boundaries, Denton ISD is able to offer the highest quality academic programs.
However, it maintains a small school climate so students can develop stronger leadership skills.
The goal of the district is to keep its high schools at maximum enrollment of 2,000. In 2005, Denton ISD opened its third regular high school. The community consistently passes bond elections by 4 to 1 margins in support of its schools and students.
Denton ISD encompasses 180 square miles and is part of 10 cities and communities. The parents, businesses and community support its students in all their endeavors.
Denton ISD students have brought home state honors in almost every UIL event - fine arts, academics and athletics- in the past five years.
With its high academic standards, state-of-the-art technology classes and numerous extra-curricular activities, DISD students graduate with the skills they need to lead successful lives.
