Frisco ISD’s newest elementary school in the northwest corner of the school district will open in the fall of 2022.
The construction is slated to begin in the summer of 2021 after an extensive visioning process.
“Based on the discussion at the January Board workshop, we have slated the opening for 2022,” said Todd Fouche, deputy superintendent of business and operations. “We want to have a visioning process that includes the input of staff, students and the community.”
The Stantec architecture design will include open and flexible spaces, which are ideal for collaboration and active learning. The campus will also integrate outdoor learning spaces.
Designing learning spaces is serious business in Frisco ISD, where flexible learning spaces and furniture are directly related to flexible instruction. Research shows that a campus and classroom design can directly impact learning.
Elementary school #43 will be constructed on 14 acres at the northeast corner of FM 423 and Rockhill Parkway on a site adjacent to the Somerset Park and Hollyhock subdivisions.
The campus will relieve nearby elementary schools, which have seen increases in enrollment as new homes are built in the area.
Members of the Frisco ISD community are welcome to suggest names for upcoming campuses, including elementary #43. Please email Susan Dye at DyeSu@friscoisd.org with a suggestion and rationale.
