New Braunfels ISD Breaks Ground on Newest Elementary School

New Braunfels ISD Breaks Ground on Newest Elementary School

May 28, 2024

New Braunfels Independent School District has officially broken ground on its eleventh elementary school, marking a significant addition to the district’s educational infrastructure. This new institution is strategically positioned on 158 Word Parkway within the thriving Veramendi development. As part of NBISD’s broader vision for educational excellence and community service, this new school represents both a response to New Braunfels’ recent growth and a forward‑looking investment in the future.

School Details

Tentatively named “NBISD Elementary #11,” the school is slated to accommodate up to 750 students when it opens its doors in fall of 2025. This project is not just a response to the current educational demand, but a proactive step towards accommodating future growth – with plans to consider zoning, transportation, staffing, and the final naming of the school in future meetings, the district is being thorough in its approach to enhancing educational infrastructure.

The project is being brought to life by Huckabee & Associates, with construction managed by Bartlett Cocke General Contractors, and serves as part of a broader initiative funded by the 2021 Bond Program to emphasize the district’s commitment to scaling its educational infrastructure parallel to community growth.

Addressing Community Needs

Superintendent Laurelyn Arterbury highlighted the district’s proactive approach: “The growth in this area continues to rise and with that forms the need for more space. This project and others from the 2021 bond will help keep NBISD on track to keep up with the growth.”

NBISD currently boasts a rating in the top quartile among Texas school districts per the Texas School Guide, and this new school is poised to further enhance the district’s reputation for educational excellence. For families considering relocating to Veramendi, the new elementary school represents an even more significant draw, as it will be the master‑planned community’s second on‑site school, offering advanced educational facilities within walking distance of home.

As New Braunfels continues to grow, both in population and infrastructure, NBISD is poised not only to meet the current demands but to anticipate future needs, ensuring that its youngest residents have access to top‑tier education right in their backyard.
