Canutillo Independent School District is a public school district with its headquarters in El Paso, Texas.[1] Dr. Pedro Galaviz is the Superintendent of Schools.

The district opened on April 18, 1959.[2] In addition to Canutillo, the district serves a portion of Vinton as well as the communities of Prado Verde and Westway. A portion of El Paso also lies within the district.[3] This portion is largely unpopulated, but construction is quickly filling in raw land within Canutillo ISD boundaries.

In 2011, the school district was rated "recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[4]

The district's Northwest Early College High School is a 2018 recipient of the U.S. Department of Education's Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award.
