For many years, all the children in Farmers Branch attended one school on
Valley View Lane. The building eventually became a grade school and in 1967,
a new Farmers Branch Elementary school was built on Tom Field Road. The
original school building on Valley View Lane housed the Valley View Learning
Center from 1975 until 1989. The learning center was renamed the Mary Grimes
Education Center and moved to a new location on Hutton Drive in 1989.
This Farmers Branch School Building was located on Valley View Lane at Dennis
Road in Farmers Branch, Texas.

5th thru 8th grades were on the second floor. At one time the was an
