Voters approved a bond election in 2017 that included the construction of two new middle schools in Little Elm ISD, one of which will be on-site at The Tribute community. The 194,000-square-foot building, Lowell H. Strike Middle School, is scheduled to open fall of 2020 and will accommodate 1,200 students in a two-story, open-concept, and flexible design. The open-style provides more visibility throughout the building while the flexible design gives students and teachers the freedom to adapt spaces based on learning needs. “When considering the look of the two campuses, we wanted to design something innovative for our students and teachers to have a world-class educational experience,” said Daniel Gallagher, Little Elm ISD Superintendent.

It has been more than four years since the District has opened a new campus. The most recent was in 2014 with the new construction of Prestwick STEM Academy, also located in The Tribute. A role model in Texas, Prestwick STEM Academy is an innovative environment for learning. Little Elm ISD opened Prestwick STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) K-8 Academy to create a collaborative learning environment. As a project-based learning campus, students take ownership of their learning, and teachers facilitate this approach by providing an authentic experience in lessons of discovery with real-world applications.
A one high school town, Little Elm High School students enjoy the personalized attention they receive to accomplish the school district’s mission: To engage, equip and empower each student to realize their full potential. One-to-one technology, passionate teachers, a focus on college readiness, a tremendous CTE program and modern building renovations all set the stage for a one-of-a-kind high school education.
