While the highly sought after Frisco school district is a major draw to relocating buyers to the DFW area, many specifically seek the schools that serve this master planned community.
Frisco pays homage to those that made significant contributions to the city and its school district by honoring them with their namesakes.
One of Frisco's newer high schools that opened in 2015, is already highly regarded for its academics, arts, and athletics programs. Named for Rick Reedy, who served the Frisco ISD for over 37 years, with his last 16 years as superintendent. During his tenure as superintendent, his leadership was instrumental during the unprecedented growth of the district, becoming the nation's fastest growing school district.
This new middle school also opened along with Reedy in 2015, holds the namesake of Charles B. Pearson, born in the Frisco area, owned a family dairy, served on the Frisco School Board, President of President of the Frisco ISD Board of Trustees and was actively involved in both community and missionary work around the world.
Opened in 2002, Pioneer shares a part of Frisco's farming history with its location once known for some of Frisco's legacy families, the Newman's, Malone's, and Robertson's that all attended the old Robertson school that was situated near this location.
Since 2005, this elementary school sat as the only Frisco school adjacent to then Phillips ranch. The campus namesake, Calvin Bledsoe, served on the Frisco ISD Board of Trustees for 9 years during which he was instrumental in the passage of a bond that provided for the building of Frisco High School, now known as Staley Middle School.
In response to the fast growth of Phillips Creek Ranch to the north, this elementary school opened in 2012. Its namesake as with many Frisco schools honors another pioneer Frisco family, Gene and Ruby Nichols. Heavily involved in volunteering for Frisco sports, Gene ran the game clock for Frisco football games for 42 years. Ruby was a founding member of the Frisco Heritage Association and a high school principal's secretary.
As Phillips Creek Ranch continued to grow to the west and south, Hosp opened in 2014. Its namesake family, Pete and Gracie Hosp served and volunteered for over 50 years in Frisco and Frisco ISD. One of Gene's best known roles has been Santa for the city of Frisco and at churches while Gracie owned Frisco Travel and worked at Frisco Square Development.
Joining Pioneer in 2002, this elementary school's namesake was for a renowned and Frisco woman educator, Izetta Sparks that taught for over 45 years after earning college and honorary degrees, most notably an honorary doctorate degree from Hardin-Simmons University where she set up a trust fund for youth scholarships.
