Frisco is one of the fastest-growing communities in the United States. Founded in 1902 as a small railroad town, today’s Frisco is on track for the future. A wide variety of housing styles and price ranges are available in this Collin County town. From the old town area to golf course lots and country homes on acreage, to resale and new construction by nationally known homebuilders; you'll find Frisco a great place to call home. Frisco offers its residents a unique living experience, with numerous recreational activities, recognized schools and great neighborhoods. Frisco is also home to a variety of sporting venues, including the Dr Pepper Ballpark, a minor league baseball Stadium that is the home of the Frisco RoughRiders; FC Dallas Stadium, which is primarily used as a soccer stadium by the FC Dallassoccer club but also hosts football games and concerts; and the Dr Pepper Arena, a combination hockey and basketball venue, which is the home of the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League and the North American Hockey League franchise Texas Tornado. It also serves as the practice facility for the Dallas Stars of the National Hockey League.
Since 2003, Frisco has received the designation “Tree City USA" by the National Arbor Day Foundation. A 2007 Forbes study named Frisco as the seventh-fastest growing suburb in the United States. In 2011, CNN listed Frisco as one of the "Best Places to Live" in the nation, and Forbes ranked it 7th in its list of "America's 25 Best Places To Move".
WHAT MAKES FRISCO UNIQUE?
One of the defining features of Frisco is that residents are very involved in the community. “The residents are always participating in community events and there is a large volunteer base here,” notes Maso. Frisco has worked hard to become a destination city, and it is not only home to families and businesses, but is also home to several professional sports teams.
The teams include: FC Dallas professional soccer team, the Frisco Rough Riders Minor League baseball team (an affiliate of the Texas Rangers), and the Texas Legends, which play in the NBA Development League (an affiliate of the Dallas Mavericks). With multiple venues to watch the teams, Frisco is a great place for sports and entertainment!
The majority of Frisco falls under the Frisco Independent School district, however small portions are serviced by the Lewisville Independent School District, Little Elm Independent School District, and Prosper Independent School District. “The education is the number one reason to move to Frisco,” says Purefoy. “FISD does a fantastic job of limiting the number of students in each high school. Every student is known by their name, and they do not get lost in the crowd.”
Frisco ISD has eight high schools. FISD also has 13 middle schools, with one more expected to open for the 2015-2016 school year. Frisco also has 37 elementary schools, and offers an Early Childhood School that is available for children ages three and four. A unique feature that Frisco has is the Frisco ISD Career & Technical Education Center (CTE or CaTE Center), a building in which students from high schools can experience and try different careers, from veterinary work to advertising, to graphic design. The center offers students the opportunity to have a hands-on experience with different careers to see what they might choose as a future career before entering the work force or college.
“I cannot say enough about the quality education and the personal quality of the education partnership that the school district has with the City of Frisco,” says Maso. “Frisco is a safe town with excellent education,” adds Purefoy. “People have the opportunity to play sports at any level, from young children to adults. Frisco is rated one of the best towns to raise an athlete.”
