About Us


Three Way Independent School District is nestled in the heart of Erath County, Texas. Our district also extends its reach into the beautiful Somervell County.

Established in 1947 and officially inaugurated in 1948, Three Way ISD has a rich history steeped in small-town values, family-oriented principles, and a close-knit community spirit. It was born out of necessity when three local schools, Chalk Mountain, Pony Creek, and Johnsville, joined forces to create a thriving hub of education. At the time, these schools were facing the possibility of closure, but their unity and determination gave rise to what we proudly call Three Way ISD today.

Located on Highway 67, conveniently situated between the picturesque towns of Glen Rose and Stephenville, our district covers an expansive 82 square miles. While our roots may be firmly grounded in tradition, we are rapidly evolving to meet the needs of our growing community. In 2017, Three Way High School was established, adding the 9th grade to our educational offerings, and in 2021, we celebrated the commencement of our first graduating class.

At Three Way ISD, we are committed to nurturing the development of young men and women with active, creative, and independent minds. Our mission revolves around instilling strong character and the courage to think and act on one's beliefs and interests. We achieve this mission through a holistic approach that emphasizes collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills, preparing our students to face the challenges of the modern world.

Our dedication to excellence extends to our facilities, too. In our pursuit of providing the best educational environment for our students. This expansion is driven by the growing enrollment in our district, with the construction of Three Way High School being completed in the summer of 2018. 

As we continue to grow and evolve, Three Way ISD remains deeply rooted in its small-school history and family values. Our close-knit community fosters an atmosphere of support, where every student is known and valued. Together, we are building a bright future for our students, and we welcome you to be a part of the Three Way ISD family.
