Our Namesake-Dean H. Krueger
On February 24, 2004, the Northside Independent School District Board of Trustees named the formerly titled "Braun Road Area" elementary school in honor of longtime Northside resident, parent, teacher, assistant principal, principal and District Administrator Dean H. Krueger.
Dean H. Krueger Elementary School opened in the summer of 2005. Krueger most recently served as Deputy Superintendent for Administration, capping a 30-year career in public education. He also attended schools in NISD.
Dean H. Krueger Elementary was dedicated on October 15, 2005.
Our mission at Dean H. Krueger Elementary School is to develop a child-centered learning
environment that promotes high expectations. Students, families, staff and community will actively
participate in guiding students to strive for personal excellence, while preparing them to be responsible,
respectful and productive citizens.
Mascot, Colors and More!
Krueger's mascot was originally a Cavalier.

Our school colors are red and black.
Our school song was written by Krueger's first music teacher, Eva Young.
