The recent suburban growth of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has caused LISD to grow at a great pace, becoming the 94th-largest school district in the United States in 2006. Proximity calculated a 28.56% increase in student population from 2000 to 2006; LISD was declared the 17th largest school district in the State of Texas in 2008.[4] To help maintain this growth, in May 2008, voters approved a $697 million bond package.

In 2010, the school district was rated "Recognized" by the Texas Education Agency.[5]



For several years in the 2000s and 2010s the district grew by about 2,000 pupils annually. In the 2000s the district expected to have its student body reach 60,000 by 2016, but a 2011 study commissioned by the district stated that the student enrollment would peak at 55,000.[6]

In the early twenty-first century, Lewisville ISD high schools began to reach their capacities, prompting the decision by the school board to construct additional ninth and tenth grade campuses for all schools except for The Colony High School. In the case of Edward S. Marcus High School, Flower Mound High School, and Hebron High School, ninth grade centers were built adjascent to the existing campuses. Lewisville High School gained two additional campuses, LHS Killough and LHS Harmon. Ninth and tenth grade students attend both of these campuses, before attending classes on the main campus for their junior and senior years.

In 2013 the district planned to change attendance boundaries of Flower Mound middle schools, causing some controversy in that city.[7]



The 10,000-capacity Max Goldsmith Stadium is the home of the Lewisville Farmers.

1:X (pronounced 1 to X) is a program implemented across the District of LISD. The program rolled out iPads to the vast majority of LISD Students, and implemented Google Apps specifically for the school district. The goal is to have "The right technology at the right time."[8]

iPad replacement program


Beginning in 2018, 4th graders and current high school students received new 10.5" iPad Pro devices with keyboard cases to replace aging iPad Airs implemented in 2014. Students in grades 5-8 received the exact same iPad Air devices they had before, but with a new Mobile Device Management and a new case with no keyboard. In fall 2019, students in grades 5-8 received new iPad Pros with keyboards to match the rest of the district.[9]

Fiber network


Starting in 2016 and completing in spring 2018, LISD rolled out a fiber optic network provided by Unite Private Networks, that provides speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s. This network replaced aging cable infrastructure from local ISP Grande Communications. The district also installed a link to the Region XI Educational Service Center.[10]



High schools


NOTE: Killough and Harmon are 9th-10th Grade campuses which feed into Lewisville High School but are located away from the LHS campus. Flower Mound, Hebron, and Marcus each have separate 9th Grade campuses co-located with their respective high schools. The Colony High School does not have a separate 9th Grade campus.
