Azle ISD Breaks Ground on Elementary Number 6

May 17, 2022

District leaders and members of the Azle ISD community met with VLK Architects and BTC Construction on Monday, May 16, to officially break ground on Elementary School No. 6.

This will be the district’s first new (additional) campus since Cross Timbers Elementary and Forte Junior High opened 23 years ago.

The new school will be located on South Stewart Street and FM 730 South and is scheduled to open for students in August of 2023, with a capacity of approximately 600. The campus will have an innovative design similar to Walnut Creek Elementary.

Financing for this campus in the amount of $28,313,301 was approved in the May 2021 Bond Package.

A name will be decided by the district’s naming committee in the coming months. Please send an email to if you are interested in participating in the naming committee.
