Denton ISD Trustees Review Plans for Elementary #25
Denton ISD Board of School Trustees recently reviewed schematic designs for Elementary School #25 that will open in the Fall 0f 2022. The new campus, situated on property donated by the neighborhood’s developer, will be located in Sandbrock Ranch, a new master-planned community located in Aubrey and serve students in the Braswell High zone.
Sandbrock Ranch is located in the far northeast corner of the district, just west of FM 1385. The elementary school will be positioned at the southern end of the community development and will accommodate the growth in that part of the district.
During a recent report to the Board of Trustees, Templeton Demographics recently ranked Denton ISD first in annual home closings amongst all Dallas-Fort Worth area school districts, making the district the fastest growing district in the area.
The new 87,800 square feet elementary school campus is being designed by Pfluger Architects. The facility, which was approved for construction by voters as part of the 2018 bond package, has the initial capacity for 750 students.
Design elements of the 87,800 square-foot campus will mirror the community inspired natural connection to the land and its equestrian heritage.
The campus design fits the district’s elementary school prototype with an identical footprint to recent elementary school designs in Union Park, Bell and Cross Oaks Elementary schools. The campus design includes many energy-saving features and a storm shelter designed to protect occupants from severe weather, particularly tornadoes.
“I am very impressed with the creativity that is displayed here with this design,” said Jim Alexander, trustee. “I believe this artistry is very unique and will go extremely well within the community.”
