Northwest ISD breaks ground on Lance Thompson Elementary
Northwest ISD held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, June 27, for Lance Thompson Elementary School, the district’s 19th elementary campus.
Lance Thompson Elementary School will be located in the Harvest master-planned community within the city of Northlake and is scheduled to open at the start of the 2019-20 school year. The building will be the first to use Northwest ISD’s new prototype elementary school design, featuring collaborative learning areas and other unique teamwork-focused features.
The school is named after Lance Thompson, a former child in Northwest ISD who died unexpectedly in 1987. For more information about the school’s namesake, click here. For more information about the design of the school, click here.
