LISD STEM Academy at Memorial Elementary on its Way

Construction updates at new elementary school.

The future elementary school site on Josey Lane in Lewisville, Texas continues taking shape, on track for its opening this fall. Now, with a name and a campus leader. 

Memorial Elementary updates

In February, the Lewisville ISD Board of Trustees approved to name the new campus the LISD STEM Academy at Memorial Elementary. The Board believes the selected name, inspired by Memorial Drive in The Colony, will honor those who have served the United States as well as memorialize a number of important and influential people in the community. Memorial Elementary will be a split-feeder campus, and most students will be zoned for middle and high school in The Colony High School feeder pattern while other students will attend middle and high school in the Hebron High School feeder pattern.
