Dallas Morning News placed the district at 15 in their Top 100 Places to Work contest this year. In addition to winning this title, superintendent Dr. Michael Goddard was named as a top leader alongside two CEO’s in the DFW area.

“It is incredibly exciting for Lovejoy ISD to be recognized as one of the Top 100 Places to work in DFW, and to make the list at number 15 in the large company category is phenomenal,” Goddard said. “Especially since it is with an amazing group of teachers, staff and administrators that get to serve the best students in the world.” 

Students acknowledge the diversity of resources offered to them. 

“[The school] offers many benefits that are not available at other schools,” senior Peter Godipelly said. “The AP teachers here are some of the best, and the extracurriculars offered are very diverse and give everyone a group to be a part of.”

Administrators have also expressed their gratitude toward the school district and for the title that it has been given. 

“It is a wonderful place to be,” assistant principal Jeff Roberts said. “We are very blessed.”
