Whitehouse Independent School District celebrated the groundbreaking of Mozelle Brown Elementary School, a pre-kindergarten through 5th grade school in the Whitehouse ISD.
One of four elementary schools, Brown Elementary will replace the current aging campus in downtown Whitehouse. The campus will open in August of 2018 and continue to serve the students of Whitehouse ISD located in Southeast Tyler and North of the city of Whitehouse.
District Superintendent Dr. Chris Moran commented, “Whitehouse ISD is a strong school district and Brown Elementary School’s relocation will only help us better serve our students and parents who live in that area.”
The new building will exceed 80,000 square feet and will have an operational capacity of 750 students, but will open with a target population of nearly 550.
Officials from Smith County, the City of Tyler, and those associated with the economic development of the East Texas Area were present to support the groundbreaking and celebrate the strong partnership with Whitehouse ISD.
Brown Elementary School is being constructed by WRL General Contractors and was designed by Harris Craig Architects.
