Carroll ISD is a K-12 public school system located in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The 21-square-mile district consists of 11 schools serving more than 8,000 students and 1,000 employees. The district is one of the largest in the state of Texas to earn the top rating of "Exemplary" by the Texas Education Agency. In addition, the district and all campuses met the federal guidelines for the No Child Left Behind Act.
The state of Texas does not rank public schools, but they do rate them based on performance on standardized tests, attendance, and drop out rates. The rating system in the state is currently being revised. CISD has a zero percent drop out rate, a 97 percent attendance rate and consistently scores above the state and national averages on assessments.
Five of CISD's schools have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools by the U.S. Department of Education. The Blue Ribbon Schools include Rockenbaugh Elementary, Johnson Elementary, Carroll Elementary, Carroll Middle School and Carroll Senior High School.
Carroll ISD earned the coveted UIL Lone Star Cup for four consecutive school years - 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The award is given to the school district achieving the highest number of points in academics, athletics and fine arts competitions.
Approximately 98 percent of Carroll's seniors go on to attend a college or university after graduation. More than 90 percent of Carroll students take a college entrance exam, with composite scores on the SAT and ACT that exceed state and national averages. Carroll offers a full array of Advanced Placement and Honors courses, a challenging curriculum for gifted and talented students and special programs for students with special needs.
