The Eisenhower community will cooperate to produce responsible individuals who are able to adapt to an ever-changing society.
Our school was named after Dwight D. Eisenhower, our 34th president of these United States.
Eisenhower's four acre site, located between Waggoner Park and a llama farm, was acquired in 1968. The unique construction is elevated in relation to the surrounding grade allowing for rising water from the nearby Johnson Creek. The original school building was constructed using the open classroom concept. In 1991 there were 8 classrooms added --4 on the west side and 4 on the east side. Walls were added in 2000, closing in all rooms. In 2008, part of the llama farm was purchased in order to expand, adding the Kindergarten rooms, First Grade rooms, gym, and office area. We are the only school in Grand Prairie north of I30.
