Mr. Coy Tipton

Principal - Coy Tipton: 

Mr. Tipton grew up in the heart of the Texas Panhandle in AMarillo. He was a proud Wolflin Wolf (elementary), Stephen F. Austin Bear (jr. high), and Tascosa Rebel (high school). Mr. Tipton attended college in San Angelo, Texas at San Angelo State University from 1989 until his graduation in 1994. There he met his wife, Krista and they married in 1994, and moved to Midlothian the same year. Mr. Tipton began his teaching career at Midlothian Middle School (now Frank Seale Middle School in 1994, and later moved to Midlothian High to teach Social Studies while coaching basketball, football, and girls' cross-country for eight years. Mr. Tipton's administrative career began as serving as Assistant Principal at J.A. Vitovsky for two years, and came back to Frank Seale as an Assistant Principal in 2010. Mr. Tipton has been the princpal at Frank Seale since 2013 and has loved every minute of it. He says, "I cannot speak highly enough of this community and raising my own family here in Midlothian. Krista and I have two children, Lance and Karena, who are the biggest blessings in my life! Being a part of Midlothian ISD has changed me forever." 




    Welcome to the Cub Family!


    Frank Seale has a rich tradition of building life-long learners that exhibit a “NO fear of failure” attitude. Our staff is determined to build relationships with our students that will last a lifetime. Success is measured by the effort that our students put forth in their tasks and a growth mindset for all learners that means they will never give up, but instead push forward and let nothing get them down. 


    Quite simply: We desire that you know our CUBS by the way they present themselves through the CUB traits of RESPECT, CHARACTER, and PERSEVERANCE! We know that an innovative spirit, along with the 4 C’s (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, and Creativity) will help prepare them for the 21st century workforce and skills desired by top companies. Our desire is to partner with parents and community to make the MISD vision of “Inspiring Excellence Today to Change the World Tomorrow” become a reality!
