Why Fort Worth ISD?

    • All Fort Worth ISD Pre-K teachers are state certified with either an ESL or bilingual supplemental certification. Our teachers receive a minimum of 30 hours of professional development and a minimum of 15 hours of coaching each year. This teacher preparation and training for our youngest learners provide a strong foundation for our students’ K-12 experience.

    • Students in FWISD’s Gold Seal Early College High Schools are graduating with two diplomas – their high school diploma and an associate degree from Tarrant County College.

    • FWISD elementary students set a new NCAA record for number of minutes read by a single school district anywhere. Our elementary students read more than 14.9 million minutes in 2022 in the Readers Become Leaders program.
