Northwest Independent School District (Northwest ISD) is a public school district based in far north Fort Worth, Texas (USA).[1] It is named for its location in northwest Tarrant County, though most of the district lies in Denton County with parts also in Wise County.

The district serves the cities of Justin, Roanoke, Trophy Club, Northlake, Marshall Creek, Corral City, and small portions of Flower Mound and Southlake in Denton County. The Wise County towns of Aurora, Rhome, Pecan Acres, Newark, and portions of New Fairview also lie within the district. The Tarrant County portion of the district includes Haslet, Avondale, parts of Westlake, Keller, and Fort Worth. In all, the district is about 234 square miles.[2]

There are around 13,500 students in this district.[when?] It is expected to have up to 95,000 students by the early 2020s, and is the one of the fastest-growing school districts in Texas.[2]

In the 2009-2010 school year, all high school students in the district received Dell Latitude 2100 netbooks for classroom and home use. The netbooks (a mini laptop) have a very strong security system which blocks certain websites deemed inappropriate by the school both at home and on the school's server. In the 2010-2011 school year, all middle school students also received them.

In 2009, the school district was rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[3] On May 25, 2012, Gene Pike Middle School was Rated as a "School to Watch", an honor held by only 17 other middle schools.[citation needed]
