THE COLONY, DENTON COUNTY - Little Elm Independent School District has opened up its latest addition — an $18 million STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) academy — with the new school year.

The 90,000-sf school has a number of flexible learning spaces with grades set up as houses with open centers for school-wide meetings and small group discussions.

The Prestwick STEM academy is the first of its kind in Texas, and is serving students from kindergarten through eighth grade.

The academy sits at the southeast corner of Denton County at 3101 Stonefield Dr. The district encompasses 40 square miles.

The parents within the school district like the layout of the school, which gives them the ability to see their children learning throughout the building, Acting Superintendent of Schools Matthew Gutierrez said.

Along with an open facility, Little Elm ISD issues students laptops and Google ChromeBooks as they progress through their education. The school district plans to hold a dedication ceremony on September 21 to mark the opening of the school.
