Since all three schools opened 50 years ago, they’ve educated thousands of children and become cornerstones in the community.

When the schools opened in 1961, there were just five schools in the District and enrollment was 5,545. Fifty years later, NISD has 112 schools and an enrollment of 97,439.

The NISD website offers plenty of historical information about the District, including opening dates and anniversaries of all campuses, biographies of all school namesakes, and a complete history of Northside ISD.

Community members who would like to be notified by email about upcoming school anniversaries and important NISD news can join Friends of Northside.
