Settled by German and French immigrants in the 1840s, the town of Coppell has grown from a small farming village into a desirable Dallas suburb of 35,000. In addition to beautiful homes and neighborhoods, Coppell has a growing commercial base of warehouses and transportation centers. Coppell residents are served by three school districts: Coppell Independent School District (CISD), Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD and Lewisville ISD. Each district is highly regarded and provides exemplary academic, athletic and extracurricular activities. In 2000 the Coppell ISD was ranked as the #1 music program in the nation by the Music Educators Association in 2000 and Coppell High School's news program, KCBY-TV, has won several national awards for video production.
