School spirit & history

School Mascot: Eagles

School Colors: Maroon and White

Northlake has the unique privilege to serve a tight knit school community, as we are nestled nicely within the surrounding neighborhood. We take great pride in the community, neighborhood, and families that we have been called to serve. We love the opportunity to teach and be involved with the lives of multiple generations of Northlake Eagles every day.

Northlake elementary has been recognized as a “B” (85) rated campus by the Texas Education Agency in 2022 and continues to climb higher and higher towards the excellence that our students and community deserve. We boast a top-notch robotics program, who has sent teams to the world championships 3 years in a row (2021, 2022, 2023), as well as many other excellent programs, such as honor choir, art club, and yoga club. Additionally, Northlake has a strong bilingual program, with bilingual classes all the way from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade. 

Construction began for Northlake Elementary in 1974. It was not fully constructed for student use for the 1975-1976 school year, so students were temporarily placed at Webb Middle School until the beginning of the second semester.  The name “Northlake” is derived from the geographical position of this community, north of Lake Ray Hubbard. The first principal of the school was Mr. Herman Salter.  Dr. Kathy Metzinger was our principal for 24 years and now Mr. Jake Shirley is our current principal.  The initial mascot was “the knight”; we now proudly fly in maroon and white as Northlake Eagles.
