Braswell High School
Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical thinking
Welcome to Braswell High School
Braswell High School opened in August 2016, and is the easternmost high school in Denton Independent School District, serving families in the growing communities along the U.S. Highway 380 corridor. The school is named after retired Denton ISD teacher, administrator and superintendent, Dr. Ray Braswell, who led the district during tremendous growth.Inspired by the four 'C's' of learning: communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking, the high school is designed to serve as a focal point for the community. Flexible features and spaces encourage the campus to be used for community-focused events. Design concepts used,including those with an eye toward future expansions, earned the building the state's highest architectural "Honor of Distinction for Design and Value."First-class academic and extracurricular offerings continue to bring pride to the school and the families served by the four "learning houses" that naturally create smaller learning communities, providing students with individualized instruction.
