Next elementary school named Bonds Ranch
At their March 16 school board meeting, Northwest ISD trustees unanimously approved Bonds Ranch Elementary School as the name of the district’s 20th elementary campus, paying tribute to a local geographical area and road near the school.
Bonds Ranch has geographic significance in the Fort Worth and Saginaw areas, signified by Bonds Ranch Road, around where much of the school’s student population will reside. P.R. “Bob” Bonds began a large ranch in the area that bears his family name in 1933, which led to the naming of the road in his ranch’s honor.
Bonds Ranch Elementary School is located in the Berkshire master-planned community near U.S. Highway 287, between Lakemont Drive and Berkshire Lake Boulevard. The school will feature Northwest ISD’s newest elementary design, most recently used in Lance Thompson Elementary School and the currently under-construction Haslet Elementary School replacement.
The new school is scheduled to open at the start of the 2021-22 academic year and will relieve other campuses in the area, such as Schluter Elementary School.
