The future home of many BISD 3rd, 4th & 5th graders!
In 2015 our awesome community voted "yes" to investing in the future of our students here at Burkburnett ISD. A large piece of the bond was building a new school to house many of BISD's 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders while utilizing Hardin Elementary for some 6th grade classes and the Central Administration offices.
Our new elementary school offers 85,000 square feet of innovative and adaptable learning spaces, while being energy efficient and state-of-the-art. While Tower Elementary will still house K-5 students, Evans will become the Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 2 in-town campus. Overton Ray Elementary will house all Grades 3-5 students who do not attend Tower Elementary. The new campus, named after long time BISD educator and principal Overton Martin Ray, Jr., will be ready to welcome students in August of 2018.
