125th Anniversary Celebration

The 2023-2024 School year marks 125 years since the official formation of the Forney Independent School District. The 125th anniversary means it's time to celebrate a century-and-a-quarter of education, learning, and community in our Forney Family.

Forney ISD was founded in 1899 when community members voted to establish the school district that began with the Brooklyn School. 

From just a handful of students in the late 1800s to over 16,000+ today, the District has seen tremendous growth. New growth and expansion bring plenty of changes, but one thing that has not changed is the dedication and commitment to the future of our students, staff and community.

Together, we celebrate Forney ISD's humble beginnings, remarkable growth, and all that is yet to come in the future.
