    About the Sunnyvale Independent School District

    Sunnyvale ISD is located approximately 15 miles from downtown Dallas and is convenient to Lake Ray Hubbard. Residents of our town enjoy both quiet, tree-lined streets and scenic wide-open spaces - and a tremendous sense of community pride! The Town of Sunnyvale was incorporated in 1953 and covers 17 square miles.

    A Brief History of Sunnyvale ISD
    Schools in the communities of New Hope, Tripp, Hattersville, and Long Creek merged on February 26, 1956 to form Sunnyvale ISD. These four schools united to create Sunnyvale School for students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade. Students, at this time, attended high school in the Mesquite Independent School District.

    In May 2007, voters in the Town of Sunnyvale passed a $25 million bond package for a high school facility. Construction on the 110,000 square foot facility began in April 2008. During the construction phase, the freshmen and sophomore classes were accommodated at Sunnyvale Middle School. The Class of 2011 - the district's first-ever graduating class - began their junior year in the brand new high school facility in August of 2009, along with the incoming freshman and sophomore classes of that school year.

    Since that time, SISD had grown dynamically and continues to do so. A new elementary campus was built and students began learning in this state-of-the-art facility in 2012. A middle school expansion and innovative learning wing was added in 2016. In August of 2018, a new dining hall opened at SHS and the stadium was expanded and upgraded to accomodate all Raider Fans, including the installation of a visitor's side concession stand. In December of 2019, the Sunnyvale community gathered to raise the curtains on the long-awaited SISD auditorium - a competition-level fine arts space built to house Sunnyvale's excellent fine arts program. In August of 2019, an innovative learning expansion to SHS opened along with the state-of-the-art Sunnyvale Intermediate School. The grand opening was held on Aug. 17. Well over 500 attended the dedication of this uniquely innovative facility.
