Dickinson ISD operates 14 schools and is responsible for about 11,600 students. The district covers 61 square miles, spanning across three cities and two unincorporated towns that include: Dickinson, Texas City, League City, Bacliff, and San Leon. In the 2019 to 2020 school year, a new ninth-grade building opened on the campus of Dickinson High School. The new building houses up to 900 freshmen, which has helped alleviate the growing enrollment numbers DISD has experienced.

Dickinson ISD has recently opened a new junior high campus, Kranz Junior High. This campus is named after Eugene Kranz, a Dickinson resident who served as the Mission Control Flight Director for the Apollo and Gemini Programs. This new addition allowed DISD to expand the Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Academy to students in grades 7 and 8. Dickinson ISD continues to experience rapid growth in enrollment and prides itself on providing excellent academic, job training, and extracurricular programs.
