Lubbock Independent School District was established in 1907. Accredited by the Texas Education Agency, Lubbock ISD is the largest school district that serves the city of Lubbock, Texas ( USA). The Lubbock Independent School District covers 85.5 square miles (220 km2) and contains nearly 900 acres (3.6 km2) of school properties that are owned by the local taxpayers. Those properties include 61 campuses including 37 elementary schools (Grades Pre-K - 5), 4 early childhood schools, 11 middle schools (Grades 6-8), 4 high schools (Grades 9-12), 2 special purpose, and three alternative campuses.

Lubbock ISD facilities include an Advanced Technology Center for the teaching of computer operations and programming. The ATC also instructs students in Iron and Wood construction, and automobile technology.

The district also features an Aquatic Center. Schools use this Olympic indoor facility across west Texas for swimming and diving competitions. It also trains all third-grade students about water safety during a class time at their school. The Aquatic Center also offers special water fitness instruction for the staff of Lubbock ISD.

In 2009, the school district was rated " academically acceptable" by the Texas Education Agency. [1]
