Student Enrollment


The Northwest Independent School District, uniquely situated northwest of the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex, lies within one of the fastest growing areas in Texas. The District serves 19,062 students in grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth, a projected increase of 1,365 students. The district operates seventeen elementary schools, five middle schools, three high schools, and alternative education campuses. The district opened Wayne A. Cox Elementary School for the 2013-2014 school year. The NISD enrollment projections are updated annually and regular reports are presented to the Board of Trustees to explain the findings, provide comments on new and potential housing developments and create an understanding of future residential developments’ impact on the school district. This allows the district to take a proactive stance with regard to new school locations so that sites can be targeted not only where the need is greatest, but also far enough in advance of actual new home construction to reduce acquisition costs.
