Recommended Names for New Schools Approved

Our District is excited to announce the names for our two new elementary schools and two new high schools scheduled to open in the coming years.

The approved names are:

  • Ft. Crook and Childs Road - Forest Station Elementary
  • 10th and Pine Street - Pine Elementary
  • 156 & Ida Street - Westview High School
  • 60th & L Street - Buena Vista High School

A committee representing each school's incoming students and families worked with district staff and school leadership in a series of meetings to brainstorm and recommend a name and mascot for each new school. A recommended name for the 42nd & Y middle school will be brought to the board at a later date.

These recommendations were presented to the Board of Education on Monday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m. and approved at that meeting.
