Help name next Northwest ISD elementary schools

Northwest ISD encourages community members to submit name recommendations for the district’s next elementary schools, including a school slated to open in 2024 in the Wildflower Ranch community.

Wildflower Ranch is a master-planned community located off State Highway 114. When the elementary school in this community opens, which will be the district’s 23rd elementary campus, it will relieve nearby Hatfield and Love elementary schools. The project is anticipated to begin construction next year.

Because of Northwest ISD’s accelerated growth rate, the district will also use this current naming process to help compile names for the next four elementary schools, numbers 24-27. While the locations of these campuses are not yet known, community members can either select “Wildflower Ranch (Elementary No. 23)” or a region of the district they feel is best suited for the school name they recommend.

School board policy requires that names meet one of the following criteria to be considered by the district’s naming committee, which will then recommend names for board approval:

  1. In memory of any person who has made a significant contribution to society and/or education and his or her name shall lend prestige and status to an institution of learning;
  2. Any state or national heroic figure, landmark, and/or historical attributes; or
  3. A District property donor or his or her family members.

Per this policy, names of living individuals will not be accepted. Please note that any submissions that don’t meet one of the three board-approved categories for an elementary school name will be discarded. Additionally, names of individuals who meet the criteria for the Legacy Wall will receive consideration for that recognition.

Northwest ISD’s 23rd elementary school is scheduled to open at the start of the 2024-2025 school year and will feature the district’s new elementary design used in Lance Thompson and Berkshire elementary schools as well as the Haslet replacement campus. Two campuses under construction, Molly Livengood Carter and Johnie Daniel elementary schools, also use this design.
