Fruitvale ISD is committed to working as a team to close the gaps that separate our students from achieving all they can be. This year, we are raising the expectations in every program and at every campus so that we can prepare all of our students for success beyond high school. We will be committed to doing whatever it takes to benefit students and their success.
Our efforts will be focused on improving academics and attendance. Students simply cannot reach their highest potential if they are not in class. Another focus this year will be on preparing students for life after graduation. With your help and your commitment we will make it happen. Please join the FISD’s amazing staff as we encourage every student to be their very best. Thank you for your support.
Believe, commit, inspire and leave a legacy.

All 6 of the full-time track boys scored team points last night at a difficult meet featuring nearly all 3A & 4A schools. Gavin Sulc got 4th in the 2400 meters & 5th in the mile. Nick Morgan got 6th in the discus & Hunter Hart, Albert Anderson, Hunter Robinson, & Landon Williams all scored relay points for the Bobcats, who will attend a meet next week at Wolfe City. Good work!
