District Announces Site of Elementary School #4

elementaryMarch 22, 2023

Argyle ISD is excited to announce the location of its next elementary school.

Elementary School #4 will be located in the Harvest community on the west side of I-35. The campus, which is part of the voter-approved 2022 bond package, is scheduled to open in the fall of 2024 and will serve students in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.

The location of the campus is the northwest corner of 17th St. and Cleveland Gibbs Rd. on 23 acres donated to the district by Hillwood Properties. Construction is projected to begin this summer.

“We are excited to begin construction on our district’s fourth elementary school,” Argyle ISD School Board President Sam Slaton said. “Thank you to the community for voting to approve the bond to make this necessary expansion possible and to Hillwood Properties for graciously donating this land to the district.”

The campus will be built for an 850-student capacity and designed similarly to Argyle West and Argyle South. The district’s 10-Year Strategic Growth Plan includes a commitment to maintaining 850-capacity elementary campuses for consistent instructional space across the district.

“Having a second elementary in the western part of the district provides much-needed instructional space for our elementary students in this rapidly growing area,” Argyle ISD Superintendent Dr. Telena Wright said.

Elementary School #4 is one of two elementary schools in the 2022 bond package. Elementary School #5 is projected to open in 2026. Argyle West, which is also located in Harvest, opened in 2019 and was part of the 2017 bond.

In the fall of 2022, the district opened its third elementary campus - Argyle South - in the Canyon Falls community in Flower Mound. Argyle ISD currently has more than 2,400 elementary students, and that total is expected to more than double by 2033.

Argyle ISD is planning a community ground-breaking event for the campus later this school year and will announce the date in the coming weeks.
