Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at London I.S.D. This is an exciting time for our district as we continue to grow. We now have over 1100 students enrolled in the district! Regarding this growth, construction will soon commence on Phase 1 of our new elementary school, a new gym, and a new band hall. Rich in tradition while focusing on our future, London I.S.D. strives to be the one of the premier school districts in the State of Texas, and our student achievement reflects our hard work and dedication to this endeavor. Building upon our prior achievements, London High School finished 2017-2018 tied for 6th in the state for the prestigious Lone Star Cup. Still a relatively new high school, graduates from our first 4 graduating classes are attending prominent universities throughout our great state and country, including M.I.T., Johns Hopkins, Rice, Texas A&M, the University of Texas, Texas Tech, and UNT just to name a few. Our Advanced Placement, dual credit, and CTE offerings have expanded every year as we aim to place all of our students on a path to pursue the university and major of their choice and/or an industry certification which leads to prosperous career options upon graduation. Last year, we started our rocketry/aero science program called SystemsGo, and are excited to continue designing and launching rockets this year! Our middle school Pre-AP course offerings are designed to prepare our students for the rigorous courses they will take in high school. In fact, we are proud to offer high school level courses such as Algebra I, Spanish I, and Biology I in 8th grade. The middle school curriculum also provides our students with options to pursue their interests in extracurricular courses such as theater arts, robotics, and music. The rich tradition and history of our elementary is what forged the foundation of London I.S.D.’s reputation as a premier school district. For over 100 years, London Elementary has served our community and guided thousands of students onto a path of success and achievement. The extracurricular opportunities and after-school clubs will expand even more this year to develop well rounded students by igniting their minds and hearts for a lifetime of learning. Great things are happening at London I.S.D. and we covet and value the opportunity to serve our children.
