Planning Our Future

Designated as one of the fastest growing school districts in Texas, Frenship ISD welcomes hundreds of new students each year. As of the 2023-2024 school year, Frenship serves more than 11,500 students and nearly 1,400 staff members across 15 campuses. According to experts and demographic studies, those numbers will continue to quickly climb over the next decade with Frenship High School expected to reach capacity in 2023. 
On November 3, 2020, registered voters in the Frenship District approved a $299.7 million bond to help accommodate the rapid growth. More than 90% of the $299.7 million bond is dedicated to building additional schools and renovating existing facilities to accommodate increased student enrollment. This includes the construction of a fourth middle school, Alcove Trails Middle School that opened in August 2023, a ninth elementary school, Ridgewood Elementary, that will open in August 2024, and a second comprehensive high school, Frenship Memorial High School, set to open in August 2025. 
For years, Frenship has been preparing for this rapid growth. This process began years ago with the creation of the Frenship Strategic Plan that includes positively seeking innovative solutions to address current and future growth while honoring Frenship's rich tradition of excellence. 

Long Range Planning Committee

Frenship ISD formed a Long Range Planning (LRP) Committee in the Fall of 2019 to help address continued growth and guide the District in the decision making process. 

The LRP Committee consisted of nearly 30 business owners, parents, administrators, and other Frenship stakeholders. This committee was tasked with determining facility solutions for grades 9-12. The group of community members met over the course of three months to review enrollment data and projections, residential/commercial development in Frenship ISD, tour Frenship facilities and held in-depth discussions on the future Frenship facility needs.

At the conclusion of five meetings and after careful thought and consideration, the committee reached consensus and made a recommendation to the Frenship ISD Board of Trustees to build a second high school to accommodate the growth. 

Based on community input and expert studies on Frenship's growth, the Frenship Board of Trustees unanimously accepted the recommendation and approved the call for a 2020 bond election to address the rapid growth.

As Frenship opens these new campuses, we will work closely and collaborate with community members, parents, students, local business owners, and other Frenship stakeholders when it comes to making big decisions. This includes attendance boundaries, naming new schools, and selecting the mascot and color for Frenship Memorial High School. 


Frenship was built on a rich tradition of excellence where students attain great achievements. We will continue that tradition as we welcome the growth and new families to Frenship. Frenship's mission is to educate and develop all students by providing a foundation to empower them to reach their maximum potential and realize their opportunity of choice. That will remain a constant as we grow and continue to "Seek Perfection ... Capture Excellence".
