Northwest Independent School District (Northwest ISD) is a rapidly growing North Texas public school district with its headquarters in the city of Fort Worth, Texas (USA).[1] with a Justin postal address.[2] The school district is named for its location in the northwestern area of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. The school district lies in three North Texas counties: Denton County, Tarrant County and 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 approximately 234 square miles.[3]

As of September 2014, Northwest ISD educates over 19,000 students in its twenty-seven educational campuses.[when?] Northwest ISD is expected to have up to 35,000 students by the early 2020s, and is the second fastest-growing school district in Texas.[3] There are 56 active housing communities within the attendance boundaries of Northwest ISD.[3]

For the 2013-2014 school year, the school district was rated as "meeting standard" by the Texas Education Agency, which is currently the highest ranking given under the STAAR system.[4][clarification needed]
