Education

Public Education

Like any great community, the backbone of Weatherford is its exceptional public school system.

The Weatherford Independent School District’s mission is to teach, challenge and inspire each student in a safe, nurturing environment to succeed in the global community. With a vision to be the world-class district of choice, Weatherford ISD equips children with the skills they will need to succeed in a global society. By embracing change and progress, Weatherford schools represent the ideal environment for families who value education in a hometown community environment.

Covering 254 square miles, Weatherford ISD is comprised of 11 campuses. Seven elementary schools provide students with a strong educational foundation to prepare them for further studies. Two middle schools carry young people through the beginning of their secondary school years. From middle school, our students merge into one class at our Ninth Grade Campus and then enter Weatherford High School for grades 10-12.

Located in a community that truly supports education, Weatherford ISD has the support of a district-wide volunteer program that is a model for other independent school districts across the state. Thousands of parents, grandparents and community members serve as volunteers assisting teachers and serving as mentors or tutors for students.

The Weatherford ISD is also the sole beneficiary of the Weatherford ISD Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization that raises funds annually to award grants to teachers for innovative classroom programs that enrich the education of our students. The Foundation also provides brand new supplies to students in need and awards scholarships to teachers for continuing education.

Weatherford ISD is a 2011 recipient of the Texas Award for Performance Excellence (TAPE) presented by the Quality Texas Foundation. This award recognizes organizations that excel in performance and organizational improvement principles and is the state’s equivalent to the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. It also is the highest level recognized by the Quality Texas Foundation. Weatherford ISD is one of only four school districts in Texas to have received this prestigious award.
