One factor to consider when shopping for a new home is the quality of education available in the area for your children. If you’re looking at homes for sale in Frisco, TX, you can rest easy when it comes to school quality.
The Texas Education Agency recently awarded the Frisco School District its highest rating of Exemplary. What’s more, the Frisco ISD received a five-star rating by the State Comptroller’s office for achieving strong academic performance while keeping costs low. School test scores continue to improve, too, and are well above state and national averages.
Frisco schools are small in size, which allows more students to be involved in activities, and to forge meaningful relationships with their teachers. For instance, the majority of high school students are involved in some school-related activity outside of the classroom. And about 90% of Frisco graduates plan to further their education.
All Frisco elementary and secondary schools have computer labs and distance learning equipment which allows students to take virtual field trips anywhere in the world, or collaborate with a classroom across town.
The Frisco school district is committed to attracting and retaining highly qualified, certified teachers; gifted new teachers; and seasoned, experienced teachers too. Twenty-two percent of the FISD staff hold advanced degrees, and 56 percent of teachers have six or more years experience.
Not willing to rest on their laurels, the Frisco ISD goals for 2011 include escalating the academic rigor in all classes while still continuing its quest to have every one of our students feel “capable, connected and cared for.”
