Sheldon ISD covers 53.5 square miles and serves several neighborhoods in the Sheldon Lake area. For the last 20 years, 2-3% enrollment growth has driven new construction and expansions throughout the district. Sheldon ISD began the 2020-21 school year with 10,280 students.
The district has attendance boundaries that determine what school a student attends. Students are not transferred from one school to another unless they are involved in a program that is only offered at another campus ( Suzuki Strings, Special Education, etc.) or the student is part of a Compass School transfer.
