Large, master planned neighborhoods like Canyon Falls and Harvest are bringing new students to the district in suchlarge numbers, the district is expected to double in size in a 5 year period. But AISD has a plan for that. In 2017 there were just under 2700 AISD Eagles. Projections for 2023? An almost doubling of students to 5060. While it seems astounding that a district could double in size in just five years, the growth is not unlike what other districts in the DFW Metroplex have smoothly transitioned through.  What makes the growth in the Argyle ISD different is that it will still remain so small. The entire district will still be home to less students than can be found populating one 6A High School i...
