From DFW International Airport, travel North on FM 2499 eight miles to Dixon Road. Turn right on Dixon Road. Go 1.4 miles to arrive. On the right is Marcus 9th Grade Campus.

After completing 9th Grade High School at Marcus, students attend 10th, 11th, and 12th Grade Campus next to the 9th Grade High School. The Flower Mound Community is invested in student education and job opportunities. Local jobs for students are many to choose from. A fun place for students to work is across the street at Sonic where students/employees roller skate to cars to choose and deliver their orders. For students attending Flower Mound High School, there is also another Sonic located nearby Campus too. 

The Flower Mound Library recently went through major construction during the pandemic and expanded their facilities. It's GORGEOUS and very accommodating for anyone in the community to learn. The Flower Mound Library partners well with all schools in Flower Mound. Currently, the Flower Mound Library has collaborated with Marcus High School DECA Club, an organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in high schools and colleges around the globe in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management. 

 

 

The Flower Mound Public Library is a great place for students to have Fireside Chats with friends. Adults can too! The location for the library is in a beautiful neighborhood with things to do with job opportunities too. Lifetime Fitness is just a short walk away and so is Sonic. Located at 3030 Broadmoor Lane in Flower Mound there is always something interesting and fun going on at the Library. Students and Patrons can also book private rooms or just sit out in the open where everything is closely spaced out with plenty of elbow room. 

 

In the photo on the top left at the back of the photo is one of many Study Rooms behind glass and door set up with tables and chairs for private study groups. There is even a unique Creation Lab. The art work is from local elementary school student contributions. There are many different size tables, chairs, and locations to study privately or in groups with ample lighting and electrical outlets for technology.  For more information about the Flower Mound Library visit their website. Click here for convience. Otherwise go there directly with your search. You'll be surprised at the size and all that the Flower Mound Public Library offers.

 


Whether you are looking for property by a creek, inside an HOA Community or not, tree lined streets, mixed use, or one like this across the street at the corner of the Flower Mound Public Library, I can help. I have served the community as a local REALTOR throughout the MetoTex for greater than 20 years and lived in Flower Mound long before many newer subdivisions and businesses were built. Currently, as of December 1, 2022, this is what is in the MLS:

Active Listings: 143

Coming Soon: 3

Under Contract (Option, Kick Out, Contingencies): 23

Pending Sales: 39

Closed Sales within 0 to 90 days: 412

For more information about the market, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

 

With the exception of Marcus 9th Grade High School, all of the other photos I took were from inside or around the Flower Mound Public Library on November 30, 2022. The library is bounded by the Lifetime Fitness Center, Sonic, Medical buildings, small businesses, and beautiful established neighborhood homes and trees. The nearest Grocery Stores are Krogers and Market Street. Of course, there is a plethora of interesting restaurants. Fall is a great time to think about transformation and change. Sometimes you just have to stop and look around to see what you have and what you want. If you want to move to Flower Mound, Texas, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

Another interesting post about Flower Mound - I would have loved to participate in something called "Campfire Club" in high school. That sounds like fun.

As for the library, it's huge and stacked full of information! I'd definitely be visiting that often. My library is great as well but much smaller with less books. :-(

Enjoy your Thursday!

Kat Palmiotti - I would have also selected the Campfire Club because having a social life (especially outdoors) is so important for today's youth. 

The massive size of the Flower Mound Public Library is very accommodating. I sat on one of their many rocking chairs,  bench seats, and other nice chairs in front of the fireplace on many occasions and read books. Now that the weather is getting cooler, you can bet that's where I'll be during my personal time when I am not working. 

Another interesting thing is they offer older books for purchase at a very inexpensive price. Is it really Thursday, already???

Happy Thursday to you too!

Hello Patricia - your post can be quite helpful for residents-to-be of high school-age students and others who like to be in-the-know in Flower Mound Texas.  Knowledge is often associated with power.  And for good reasons.

As always, Patricia... really wonderful photos. I remain in awe or your talents in this regard. It appears that education is an important aspect of the Flower Mound lifestyle and I'm sure that fact attracts many new residents.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - Schools and Education continues to be a high priority when listing buyers criteria for those relocating or wanting to stay in the school district for Flower Mound. Plus, because many people travel for business, personal, or the need to fly back to the home of their loved ones during holidays and out of necessity, it all seems to fit their needs for best place to live in Texas.
