  • Why Birdville ISD?

    Birdville ISD’s (BISD) vision of “Excellence, Integrity and Service” is the foundation for continued student and staff excellence in its 21 elementary schools, seven middle schools, four high schools, and one career and technology campus. BISD is the fifth-largest school district in Northeast Tarrant County, with more than 23,800 students. The district’s 33 campuses serve the community of Richland Hills and portions of Haltom City, Hurst, North Richland Hills, Watauga, Colleyville and Fort Worth.

    During the 2018–19 school year, BISD will continue its Schools with a Specialization (SWAS) initiative by adding two additional campuses to the offerings. These programs go above and beyond the state required curriculum. Based on feedback from parents and community leaders, BISD will continue expanding with additional programs on other campuses in the coming years.

    In August 2018:

    • North Richland Middle School (grades 6–8) will continue to expand its curriculum as a nationally STEM-certified middle school (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics);
    • Richland Middle School (grades 6–8) will continue with a specialization in Leadership;
    • Smithfield Middle School (grades 6–8) will open as an Advanced Learning and College Prep campus;
    • Haltom Middle School (grades 6–8) will open as a College Readiness* campus; and
    • Birdville Elementary (grades K–5) will continue with a Fine Arts Specialization.

    *Haltom Middle staff are completing training to open the school as a certified “No Excuses University” campus.

    BISD is accepting SCHOOLS WITH A SPECIALIZATION OPEN ENROLLMENT transfer applications for Resident and Non-Resident students for the 2018–19 school year from March 5 to April 6, 2018*.
