About Denton ISD

  • Denton ISD encompasses 180 square miles and contains all or parts of 18 cities, communities, or major developments. The district currently educates more than 32,000 students and is one of the fastest-growing school districts in the state, almost doubling in size over the past decade.

    The district currently contains four comprehensive high schools, nine middle schools, twenty-five elementary schools, two early childhood centers, an alternative high school, an advanced technology complex, and other specialized schools and centers.  Its location – almost centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth – ensures that Denton ISD will continue to be a popular destination for families.

    Growth has only increased the district’s commitment to excellence in the classroom, with Denton ISD students exceeding state and national averages in standardized tests and college entrance exams. The district still maintains its “small-town” roots as well, with student-to-teacher ratios of less than 13:1 at the elementary level and 22:1 at the secondary level.
