EMS ISD is home to more than 19,000 students and represents more than 35 different languages. EMS ISD covers 73 square miles and is one of the “fast-growth” school districts in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.  When the district is fully built out, we are projected to have close to 40,000 students. A growing school district means we are able to provide modern facilities, innovative programs, and attract some of the best teachers in the area. All of this in a small town environment within minutes of downtown Fort Worth makes EMS ISD a great place to live and work.
