Top Academic Scholars 

Thursday, May 20, 2021 (tentative date)

The academic journey of being named one of the top seniors in Mansfield ISD, is not for those that avoid hard work and commitment but consists of four years of outstanding efforts in the classroom day after day, week after week.  Since 1999 the Education Foundation hosts an event to recognize our top academic scholars and celebrates their achievements. 

 The Education Foundation invites and encourages the community to join us as we recognize these students for their outstanding achievements.

One unique aspect of the event is that each student is joined by a Mansfield ISD educator they have selected to recognize because of the teacher’s positive influence on their life. It is our pleasure to salute these fifty distinguished educators and recognize them for their commitment and dedication they have shown throughout their teaching careers.  

How the Top Scholars are Selected

MISD Top Academic Scholars are the students with the highest GPA at their high school. The number of Top Scholars from each campus is determined by the school's UIL status.

6 A High Schools recognize the top 12 students.
5 A High Schools recognize the top 10 students.
Frontier High School recognizes the top 2 students.

who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau."
