Frisco Independent School District is a public school district based in Frisco, Texas (USA).

The District covers portions of the cities of Frisco, Little Elm, McKinney, and Plano, as well as unincorporated land in Denton and Collin counties.

The District was originally formed in 1876 and known as the Farmers School District. Small schoolhouses served the rural population at that time. The community of Frisco began to emerge in 1902 and the school district was renamed.

The District is one of the fastest growing in Texas and the nation. In 1995, Frisco ISD had four schools. Since then, the District has added 57 new schools, opening two-to-six campuses annually. No public school district in the country grew faster from 1990-1991 to 2010-2011, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

Approximately 90 percent of the graduating seniors plan to continue their education in some way after high school.[citation needed]

In 2014, the school district was rated to have "met standard" by the Texas Education Agency.[3]

In September 2014, enrollment in Frisco ISD schools surpassed 49,000 students and is expected to climb by about 3,000 students each year. Demographers project enrollment in Frisco ISD schools will climb to 55,807 students by 2016 and 65,848 students by 2020. To meet the demands of increasing student enrollment, the District plans to open Reedy High School, Trent and Pearson middle schools and Norris Elementary in fall 2015.
