The Hardin Independent School District has experienced a rich history since its inception in 1941. It was then that five smaller schools combined to create Hardin ISD. From that point, Hardin ISD has proudly maintained a family atmosphere that is dedicated to bringing together its students who live in such a geographically large district. The district’s boundaries run from the city limits of Liberty north to the Polk County line, a distance of approximately 30 miles. East to West, the district’s attendance lines run from Hardin County to the Trinity River, a distance of about 15 miles.
