About Byron Nelson High School
Byron Nelson High School became Northwest ISD’s second comprehensive high school upon its opening in 2009, providing the Trophy Club and Roanoke area with a campus respected for its tremendous academic opportunities.
The school is named after former professional golfer Byron Nelson, a local resident who won five majors and more than 50 tournaments. Mr. Nelson was known for his hospitality and commitment to children, lending his name to a still-running golf tournament that benefits troubled children.
At Byron Nelson, students are encouraged to support one another as well as their school’s many extracurricular offerings. Beyond its academics, athletics and fine arts, the school is known for its many clubs and organizations, included award-winning debate and FFA teams.
Byron Nelson is home to two of Northwest ISD’s academies, the Academy of Biomedical Sciences and the Academy of Culinary Arts & Hospitality. The former provides its students with a world-class education rarely found in high schools, while the latter prepares students with specialized training for their desired careers.
