Attention, class. Education is a priority in Fort Worth, where advanced learning programs begin at the earliest grade levels and continue throughout high school.

Fort Worth ISD

The Fort Worth Independent School District is the largest district in Tarrant County, which has 18 other public school districts within its borders. The Fort Worth ISD has approximately 80,000 students in 144 schools for grades K-12, including 27 special campuses.

Its awards and honors include the What Parents Want designation from SchoolMatch, a private firm that assists companies with relocation. The honor has come for seven years in a row, and only goes to 14 percent of the nation's schools. It's no surprise that the Fort Worth ISD scores this well, considering it had an 83 percent increase in high-performing schools in recent years, and continues to rise at all levels of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills standards.

Fort Worth is also home to more than 200 private schools, giving parents of different faiths and backgrounds multiple options for their children's education.

We want the young professionals to be involved in Fort Worth as early as possible, and hopefully for a lifetime. They are the future, and we want their input now.
