Music classes, choir and band foster musical performers who are stewards of their musical and cultural heritage, critical thinkers, creative human beings, and excellent listeners.
Good sportsmanship and cooperation are emphasized in 13 organized sports, which begin in the fifth grade.
Our students benefit from faith formation through daily religion classes, weekly Mass and monthly service opportunities.
Our student-centered instruction focuses on critical thinking, problem-solving and cooperative learning.
In every grade, students gain an understanding of curriculum through real-world experiences. Here our 5th graders tour Southwest Airlines as part of a 5 week STEM program.
Woven through all subjects is respect for the inherent dignity of every person and the need to serve others in a Christ-like manner.
- The mission of Mary Immaculate School is to provide academic excellence in a Catholic and Christ-centered environment.
- Mary Immaculate School has been serving northwest Dallas County and southern Denton County communities for over 50 years.
- During that time we have earned a reputation for providing academic excellence within a Catholic and Christ-centered environment, evidenced perhaps most significantly our National Blue Ribbon status and by the number of graduates who go on to earn valedictorian or salutatorian status at their respective high schools.

We are not originally from Texas, so we spent a lot of time researching the public schools in Coppell, and toured a couple of different Roman Catholic Schools nearby. After the second time touring MIS and going to the student led mass on a Friday, it was clear we absolutely wanted our children to attend MIS. We have two daughters and have been a part of this wonderful MIS family since 2011. The teachers are outstanding and the overall community has been like a second family to us. I know my children are being challenged academically, guided spiritually, offered extra-curricular activities and supported in a Christ-filled environment. My girls love school, because of Mary Immaculate and sending out daughters to this school is the best decision we ever made as parents.

I have found Mary Immaculate School to be a warm and welcoming community of supportive parents, devoted teachers and hard working administrative staff. The principal's energy and enthusiasm for academics, service, and technology is a blessing. I have had 2 students graduate from here very well prepared for pre-AP and AP classes, and my youngest will be graduating in a couple of years. It's an awesome school!

Great school! We moved from Dallas to Coppell a couple of years ago. We attended a catholic school in Dallas but had heard the Coppell ISD was incredible so we put our children at Town Center Elementary. After a few short weeks, it was evident the CISD was just another public school district. We found Mary Immaculate and were blessed they were able to accept our children mid semester. My kids were embraced by the staff and students and made to feel welcome. We are very pleased by the rigorous education and loving Catholic environment. The principal, Mr. Krause is terrific and Father Michael is inspiring. Highly recommend. Our children are our best investment.

My husband attended Mary Immaculate and we have 4 children that have attended since Kindergarten. We cannot say enough wonderful things about this school! The academics are incredible; our daughter now takes pre-AP classes at a Catholic high school because the teachers prepared her so well. The teachers and staff are so helpful and really care about helping the students succeed. Mr. Krause relates very well with the students, along with being very approachable by the parents.The spirit of community is unparalleled and we have always felt like a part of a family, We highly recommend this school!

It is with much sadness that I will exit MIS with my youngest graduating this year. We started as MIS parent with our oldest child in Aug 2000, and not once in the 15 years we have had children here have we ever regretted spending the money and traveling the extra miles. Through dedicated, experienced teachers, great academics, an uplifting moral environment and a wonderful community of parents, our children have been given a firm foundation that will serve them well into adulthood. We will miss MIS and will treasure our years there!

MIS is the kind of school that gives your family the best of everything--advanced and challenging academics, great school spirit, incredible community-building activities, parents'-only fun and bonding, and a strong foundation for your family's faith. We love it!
