July 28, 2022 marks the 75th Anniversary of the founding of Community Rural High School, which led to the formation of Community Independent School District in 1974. We hope you'll join us in celebrating 75 years of #BraveNation all throughout the 2022-23 school year!
So much has changed in #BraveNation since the creation of Community Rural High School on July 28, 1947. Enrollment has grown from 235 students to over 4,000. The graduating class in 1948 had nine students, and in 2022-23 we expect over 200 students to graduate. Collin County's population has grown from just over 40,000 in the 1940s to just over 1 million now.
While much has changed, Community ISD remains a special place. Students, parents, and staff in Brave Nation focus on exemplifying the #TraitsOfABrave - Generous, Humble, Passionate, and Wise - in everything they do.
Please join us in this year-long celebration of all that makes Community ISD amazing! This webpage will act as the online home of the 75th Anniversary - you'll find stories from distinguished alumni and former staff, interviews with current student, parents, and staff on why Community ISD is special to them, and a running list of all the events and parties that will honor #BraveNation and usher in the next 75 years of Community ISD!
