Established in 1998, this school was originally an intermediate school housing 4th, 5th, and 6th graders to help alleviate Lakeview Elementary’s growing population. In 2002, Samuel Beck became the second elementary school to serve Trophy Club residents. A naming committee tasked with naming six NISD schools to open that year decided on the name Parkside. However, the land developer’s family that donated the land for the school, requested that it be named after the patriarch of their family, Samuel Beck.
