• About Princeton ISD

    The Princeton Independent School District is a rural school system covering 60 square miles, serving not only the city of Princeton, but also the surrounding communities of Culleoka, Lowry Crossing, Branch, Climax and the west side of Lake Lavon. People here enjoy the best of both worlds: country living within an hour's drive of all the benefits of the Metroplex.

    A school system that believes in the traditional emphasis on the basics of math, reading and language arts, Princeton ISD also puts proper student behavior and citizenship high on the priority list.
