Borman Elementary is known for its community support and has one of the largest mentoring programs in Texas. The staff is currently working on implementing the prestigious International Baccalaureate program.
The school, built in 1970 and renovated in 2009, was named after Frank Borman, a NASA astronaut and commander of the Apollo 8 spacecraft. Borman functions as a dual-language campus to produce bilingual and bi-literate students.
When a car crashed into the side of the Center for the Visual Arts last year, it damaged paneling on the side of the building that would obviously need to be repaired. When thinking about how to repair the facility, its leaders quickly realized beauty could come from the damage.
