Established in 1947, Community ISD has been serving the students and families in southeast Collin County for 71 years. CISD attendance boundaries spread over 89 square miles and encompass the towns of Copeville, Josephine, Lavon and Nevada. CISD is home to over 3,500 students attending our five campuses: NeSmith Elementary (Pre-K through 5th grade), McClendon Elementary (Pre-K through 5th grade and ESL program), Roderick Elementary (Pre-K through 5th grade), Edge Middle School (6th - 8th grade), and Community High School (9th - 12th grade). Ellis Education Center, a flex space, will serve as the home for Edge Middle School's 6th graders in the 2022-23 school year.
In 2019, the District received an A-Rating from the Texas Education Agency (TEA), and has remained an A-Rated District since then. In Fall 2020 and Fall 2021, Community High School was named a "Best High School" by US News and World Report, and the District received a Superior Rating for the 5th consecutive year from the state's school financial accountability rating system, known as the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST).
CISD offers a safe and caring learning environment with low student to teacher ratios. Our teachers average over a decade of experience and are dedicated to providing the individual attention each student needs, while cultivating a passion for learning in every child. To support their passion for learning, CISD provides our students with the necessary tools to engage in the curriculum and expand the learning environment. The District operates a 1:1 student device initiative. Every Pre-K through 12th grade student is issued a Google Chromebook.
