ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
Amid all the new economic development, The Colony is still a community that values the things that have always made this city a great place to live – neighbors helping neighbors, residents volunteering their time and energy for community activities, and quiet, tree-lined streets. The Colony features miles of trails and green space, offering all kinds of outdoor recreation which have earned The Colony designations as both a Tree City USA and a Playful City USA.
The shoreline of Lewisville Lake may be our backyard but all the advantages of the big city are nearby. We are conveniently located just 35 minutes from downtown Dallas and only 25 minutes from DFW International Airport.
The Colony continues to evolve and grow, and we invite you to come be a part of it. You'll feel right at home!
We are dedicated to enriching educational opportunities for our more than 53,000 students, and are leading the way in classroom technology integration. Utilizing groundbreaking, transformative and flexible learning environments through our 1:X™ initiative gives our students tools to access, create and collaborate as thriving, 21st century digital citizens.
LISD’s highly qualified team, technology integration, involved community and hard-working students make our district a premiere school system in Texas.
