The History of Coppell Schools
Where it all began in our town
History of Coppell ISD
Until 1963, Coppell athletic teams were known as the Coppell Tigers. Then, partly because of the new professional football team in Dallas, and partly because Coppell was home to a junior rodeo, the mascot changed to the Coppell Cowboys.
Today, Coppell ISD is the largest employer in Coppell, with over 1200 employees throughout its numerous branches and campuses.
