About Us

Northwest Crossing Elementary is located in the Northwest quadrant of Northside Independent School District.  The school was named after the rapidly developing neighborhood in which it is located. 

The school opened in August 1982 as NISD's 25th Elementary School.  Since that time our school has undergone several exciting changes including a new 13 room addition which was completed in 2004.  This addition houses our Pre-Kinder students, Kinder students, PPCD students, Reading Specialist, Art Room and Computer Labs.  

In 2013 we started a program for parents called WATCH D.O.G.S. WATCH D.O.G.S. is an innovative program being used by schools across America which helps them to be positively impacted by the committed involvement of fathers and father-figures in their student’s life. The goal is to have these men spend at least one day a year at the school to be an extra set of eyes and ears as a positive male role model.

Community groups use our school building for various activities: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Homeowners' Meetings, and a variety of baseball and soccer teams. Our school has also been used in the summer for a variety of enrichment programs and reading and math tutorial programs.

Northwest Crossing also has a Learning Tree program. Northside School District’s Learning Tree program offers opportunities for children to access academic enrichment, social, and recreational experiences in an after school environment that is safe and supervised.  It is run by the Community Education Department, known for its long history of providing quality programming for children.  For more information go to  http://www.nisd.net/learning-tree/.
