Denton Independent School District

1307 North Locust
Denton, Texas  76201       
(940) 369-0000

Denton Independent School District has been committed to providing a quality education since it was founded in 1882. The district encompasses 180 square miles and contains all or parts of 17 cities, communities or major developments. Denton ISD includes three comprehensive high schools, seven middle schools, 22 elementary schools, two early childhood centers, an alternative high school, an advanced technology complex, and other specialized schools and centers.

Not only does the school district community support outstanding school facilities, it demands excellence in its educational programs. It is truly an educational community where citizens are highly engaged in education – especially with two major universities and a community college within its boundaries. The presence of three institutions of higher learning within the district sets a professional learning climate that engages everyone in the community.

Although it covers a large area, Denton ISD's unique small-town community environment separates it from the growing, larger suburban school districts within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Denton ISD is able to offer all the programs available from larger school districts while maintaining a small community climate.
