Las Colinas Elementary
Pre-K through 5th Grade
2200 Kinwest Parkway, Irving, Tx 75063
Las Colinas Elementary was the first district school built in the city of Irving. The district’s boundaries have always extended into this geographical area but, for many years, the few children who lived there were bused into schools in the Carrollton-Farmers Branch area. Due to the tremendous growth in the Hackberry Creek and Valley Ranch areas in recent years, the need for a school in the area became critical.
Barbara Bush Middle School
6th through 8th Grade
515 Cowboys Parkway, Irving, Texas 75063
Barbara Bush Middle School opened in August 1998 as the district’s sixth middle school in Irving’s Valley Ranch. Named in honor of former First Lady Barbara Bush, the school was the third CFB school in Irving.

8401 Valley Ranch Parkway, Irving, Texas 75063
