Congratulations, Denton ISD Class of 2024!

Grad StatsThe Class of 2024 was the largest in Denton ISD history, with 2,350 seniors crossing the stage.

Along with being the largest graduating class in district history, this year’s seniors also accomplished another impressive feat – collecting a total of $58.7 million in scholarships.

Athletically, 100 students signed letters of intent to continue their careers at the collegiate level. Denton ISD also had 78 UIL Academic All-State athletes and 11 UIL athletic state-qualifying teams or individuals.

In fine arts, $8.8 million in scholarships was awarded to seniors. The Class of 2024 also had 14 nominees for Broadway Dallas Awards, 13 nominees for Betty Buckley awards, 29 Texas State Solo and Ensemble qualifiers and 13 Texas State Solo and Ensemble gold medalists.

Additionally, more than half of this year’s graduating class received professional or industry-standard licenses or certifications in a variety of technical fields. That represents 1,288 graduates who will be leaving Denton ISD ready to enter the workforce.

There are also 51 seniors who are enlisted or have made military commitments and 66 members of the Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC).
