Hi,

HEB ISD is opening a new elementary school in Euless this fall that will be called Arbor Creek Elementary. It will sit in the middle of N Main St, E Harwood Rd, 360, and 183. Can anyone tell me about that area and the people that live there? I am curious about the demographics of the area. There is no data available since it is a new campus. Also, because it feeds into this school, what is it like in the Centreport area with all of the apartment complexes. It’s on the other side of 360, north and south of Trinity Blvd.

My guess is that it will be pretty mixed up. I've heard the Super there for HEB say something like 80 different languages spoken in the district...that's not every country, but that should cover plenty. Google Trinity Haka to see the football game do the South Pacific Haka dances before the football game. Personally I think that is pretty cool that the kids have transfered some culture back and forth.

Maybe one downfall is a lot of apartments there...maybe mostly apartments. Nothing wrong with kids in apartments, except that they tend to move more frequently, so there could be a whole new set of friends every year if that matters.

Nice location....you could hear some highway noise and aircraft noise.

I’d imagine there aren’t many kids in the Centreport apartments. They appeal much more to professionals than families since there is nothing family-oriented nearby, and they formerly had a long bus ride to schools.

I drive through there every day on my way to/from work. It’s a quiet area; mostly people who work nearby or ride the TRE train to downtown Dallas.

There may not be many in the CenterPoint Apartments but there are about fifty other apartment complexes that probably do have a lot of kids it is a very densely populated area. Check the area on a map

It is likely to pull overflow from other elementary schools
What HEB really needs is a new JR high
And where to locate one is the problem
Bell and Trinity are both maxed out
A new jr hi would require shifting boundaries through much of the district to apportion feeder elementary schools and the current jr highs—would mean a major rebalancing of the district
Most of the growth has been in Euless/Arlington area since there is really no where to grow on the Bell side—at least because of the Trinity river bottom flood plain
So would require readjusting the flow into Trinity HS feeders
Lot of animosity about changing flow patterns of current schools
Lot of inner district rivalry—almost hatred between two high schools
Both have good programs—not always in same areas of course

I've lived in HEB for almost 22 years and I know plenty of people that went to Bell or Trinity, (including my wife who graduated from Bell) or had kids that went to those schools. I've never once heard any of them say that they even disliked one or the other, much less harbored hatred. I think you're playing on some kind of outdated stereotype that has no grounding whatsoever in reality.

No—within the admin/teachers
Lot of competition in various programs
Not something you want to advertise
And has waxed and waned in the 30+ years I have lived and taught in the district
But it is there
And rears its head in variety of ways that aren’t always obvious
