Learning Center Located at Site of Former Haslet Elementary School
501 Schoolhouse Rd., Haslet

Haslet Elementary 2019
Former Haslet Elementary

As part of the 2017 bond program, the school located at 501 Schoolhouse Road in Haslet is currently under construction to house NISD’s RISE and Horizon programs, a professional development center, and the district’s Disciplinary Alternative Educational Program.

This building is the former home of Haslet Elementary School, which moved to the LeTara development in August 2020 to a new, larger school designed to accommodate the increasing student enrollment in this fast-growing area of the district.

NISD is seeking nominations to rename the facility on Schoolhouse Road which will eliminate confusion with the current Haslet Elementary School and to properly identify the programs and services that will be housed at that location. All construction is scheduled to be complete by the fall of 2021.

Submit a name for consideration.

The deadline to submit a name is Thursday, February 11.

Texan Stadium

Texan Stadium, which was constructed in 1950 when Northwest ISD had only one high school (the Northwest Texans), is currently used for middle school and high school track and field meets, middle school football and soccer games, high school subvarsity football and soccer games, and community youth sports.

In addition, the stadium is utilized during marching band competitions.

NISD is seeking nominations to rename Texan Stadium to better reflect the fact that nine schools utilize the facility and that it is known to many as the district’s track and field complex. 

 Submit a name for consideration.

The deadline to submit a name is Thursday, February 11.
