Consistently classified as one of the fastest growing school districts in the state, Frisco ISD currently serves more than 56,000 students in 68 schools, with 516 seniors that have called Frisco ISD home for more than 10 consecutive years.

“Frisco is a really good district and it’s well known for being a good district,” junior Meghana Woodruff said. “Colleges look well upon that and they think wow you’re from Frisco, you must be a well rounded and a well educated child.”

Students that have been in the district since elementary school have found a number of benefits in doing so.

“The benefits of growing up in the same educational system is that you get to grow up with the same friends, your surroundings are always familiar to you, and the way you learn material is consistent,” senior Caroline Chandler said.

The district brings more than 2,500 new students each school year, and similar to those having been in the district since kindergarten, students moving from other districts have found the same benefits.  

“The main difference is that Frisco really focuses on different and better ways of teaching subjects,” senior Meghan Johnson said. “Changing districts to Frisco has really showed me how different districts value certain things, like some really value sports and others value academics.”

Although staying in one district through all grade levels seems ideal, students believe there are still disadvantages.

“I think there are some disadvantages,” Chandler said. “You’re not exposed to different types of environments and experiences that other students may get in other districts, but I’m glad I’ve stayed in the same district my entire life because the benefits outweigh any drawbacks.”
