Frenship Growth

Frenship ISD has continued to grow since it's beginning in 1935. The housing boom in the areas south and southwest of Lubbock and in Wolfforth, the ongoing growth of the Milwaukee corridor, the completion of the Marsha Sharp Freeway, and the eventual completion of Loop 88, all ensure that Frenship ISD will continue to face the challenges of growth for many years to come. 
 
“We will continue to face growth in numbers, and we will see new updates to the District. Yet, our core values will remain constant as we seek perfection and capture excellence for every child.”
Thriving and growing school districts are a vital component of strong communities and continuing economic progress. Frenship now serves 10,300 students, a 35% increase over the last decade. Recognized as one of the fastest growing districts in Texas, Frenship welcomes hundreds of new students each year, and we will continue to see a 2-5% increase in enrollment annually. Currently, we have 14 campuses: Frenship High School, Frenship Ninth Grade Center, Reese Education Center, three middle schools and eight elementary schools. 
 
Experiencing rapid growth, Frenship is outgrowing some of the existing facilities. Based on expert and demographic studies, some of the Frenship campuses, including Frenship High School, are expected to reach capacity by 2023. Demographers project Frenship ISD will serve 33,000 students in 50 years.
