Lewisville Independent School District (LISD) is a 127-square mile school district based in Lewisville, Texas (USA) covering all of Lewisville, The Colony, Highland Village, Copper Canyon, and Double Oak as well as portions of Flower Mound, Plano, Carrollton, Frisco, Hebron, Coppell, Grapevine and Argyle.[3]

The recent suburban growth of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has caused LISD to grow at a great pace, becoming the 94th-largest school district in the United States in 2006. Proximity calculated a 28.56% increase in student population from 2000 to 2006; LISD was declared the 17th largest school district in the State of Texas in 2008.[4] To help maintain this growth, in May 2008, voters approved a $697 million bond package.

In 2010, the school district was rated "Recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[5]


For several years in the aughts/2010s the district grew by about 2,000 pupils annually. In the aughts the district expected to have its student body reach 60,000 by 2016, but a 2011 study commissioned by the district stated that the student enrollment would peak at 55,000.[6]

In the early twenty-first century, Lewisville ISD high schools began to reach their capacities, prompting the decision by the school board to construct additional ninth and tenth grade campuses for all schools except for The Colony High School. In the case of Edward S. Marcus High School, Flower Mound High School, and Hebron High School, ninth grade centers were built adjascent to the existing campuses. Lewisville High School gained two additional campuses, LHS Killough and LHS Harmon. Ninth and tenth grade students attend both of these campuses, before attending classes on the main campus for their junior and senior years.

District facts[edit]

LISD's enrollment has grown since 1991 more than twofold.

LISD is ranked as Recognized[when?] under the Texas Education Agency, and individual schools are broken down as follows:

  • Exemplary: 38
  • Recognized: 20
  • Academically Acceptable: 2
  • Academically Unacceptable: 0

For the 2010–11 school year, LISD had approximately 51,000 students enrolled, with a total staff of 6,145.

Lewisville ISD was recognized in both 2006 and 2007 as one of the 100 best communities for music education.[7] In late 2007, Standard & Poor's upgraded LISD's bond rating to AA+, the highest rating given at the time to any school district in Texas, and one of only three nationwide.[3]

For the 2017–2018 school year, LISD recognized 58 National Merit Finalists. On the SAT, LISD students score approximately 102 points higher than the National average; on the ACT, students score 3.3 points higher.

1:X (pronounced 1 to X) is a program implemented across the District of LISD. The program rolled out iPads to the vast majority of LISD Students, and implemented Google Apps specifically for the school district. The goal is to have "The right technology at the right time." [9]

iPad replacement program[edit]

Beginning in 2018, 4th graders and current high school students received new 10.5" iPad Pro devices with keyboard cases to replace aging iPad Airs implemented in 2014. Students in grades 5-8 received the exact same iPad Air devices they had before, but with a new Mobile Device Management and a new case with no keyboard. In fall 2019, students in grades 5-8 will be receiving new iPad Pros with keyboards to match the rest of the district.[10]

Fiber network[edit]

Starting in 2016 and completing in spring 2018, LISD rolled out a fiber optic network provided by Unite Private Networks, that provides speeds of up to 1 Gbps. This network replaced aging cable infrastructure from local ISP Grande Communications. The district also installed a link to the Region XI Educational Service Center.[11]
