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.

The team consisting of Carly Kvapil and Mackenzie Mannen (second timers at the state tournament) won 2 rounds. Unfortunately, it took 3 rounds to advance to the next day.

Lady Cat Softball

4/17/14 The Lady Cat track team represented Fruitvale High School in fine fashion yesterday at the area meet in Mount Pleasant. In fifth place after field events and trailing by 30 points at the midway point in the running events, Fruitvale closed to within two points to finish second behind Karnack 101-99.
