TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Arkansas School District (TASD) will be opening two new kindergarten through fifth grade elementary schools and a new K-12 digital school.

The name for the two elementary schools is Harmony Leadership Academy and North Heights Community School. The name of the digital school will be Digital Learning Academy.

Sixth grade students will also start the 2021-22 school year on the Arkansas Middle School campus.

“We are proud to provide these additional learning opportunities for students during the next year,” TASD superintendent Dr. Becky Kesler said. “Our goal is to help each student reach his or her full potential, and I believe the opening of two new K-5 elementary schools and the K-12 digital learning school will aid in our ability to meet that objective as well as provide parents with additional options for their students.”
