The largest mall in North Texas, Stonebriar Centre, calls Frisco home! It spans 1.7 million square feet and is anchored by Nordstrom, Macy’s, Sears, JC Penney, Foleys and Galyans Sporting Goods. Plus, it features NHL size hockey/ice rink; 24-screen AMC theatre; a soft playground and a carousel.

Golf, fishing, and park facilities offer baseball, tennis, basketball, volleyball, soccer leagues and swimming. The physical education/natatorium facility, called the Alumni Fitness Center, on the Collin County Community College Preston Ridge Campus is available for use by Frisco residents.

Frisco is served by Frisco, Prosper, Little Elm and Lewisville Independent School Districts. Lewisville ISD is serving more of the population, which now has attendance of 39,108 students from K-12. However, Frisco ISD is the largest single employer in Frisco. During the past five years, FISD has grown by about 23 percent annually in student population; in 2003 enrollment grew by 30 percent, indicating that growth is accelerating. Within the district, FISD serves residents of Collin and Denton Counties and residents of Frisco, and some portions of Plano, Little Elm, and McKinney. With this growth comes the responsibility to manage the growth and to build for the future. Frisco ISD now has thirteen elementary schools, four middle schools, two high schools, one special programs school and an alternative school.
