District Profile

 
 
White Settlement ISD, home of the Fightin’ Brewer Bears, offers a hometown, community atmosphere with all the benefits of city living. The district is comprised of nine schools and has 800-plus employees. We offer four elementary campuses, a Fine Arts Academy, an intermediate school (grades 5 and 6), a middle school (grades 7 and 8), a high school (grades 9 through 12), and an alternative campus. We are a growing suburban school district that serves more than 6,700 students who reside in the City of White Settlement and a portion of the City of Fort Worth.

We are conveniently located west of downtown Fort Worth and just minutes from Lockheed Martin and the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base. Located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, we are just minutes from two popular shopping malls, and we’re surrounded by numerous department stores, restaurants and entertainment venues. Fort Worth’s Cultural Arts District offers a science and history museum, two world-renown art museums, and numerous performing arts facilities.

We are a community rich in pride and tradition, and every family can become a part of the Brewer Bear tradition because we offer Open Enrollment for kindergarten through 12th grade students.

History

In the early 1840s, seven Indian villages were located in the vicinity of what later became Fort Worth. One settlement west of the fort (uninhabited by Indians) became known as the "White Settlement." It remains the name of the city that constitutes the eastern portion of WSISD. The city grew and in the early 1860s, WSISD began as a one-room log cabin, only a short distance from the current Administration Building.
