Bruce Shulkey Elementary opened in September, 1958 with Mr. James D. Parnell as principal, fourteen teachers, and 514 students. The school was named after the late Bruce C. Shulkey, assistant superintendent of elementary schools. At the time the school was opened, the Wedgwood community was new and rapidly developing. The school was barely opened, when temporary buildings were moved in to accommodate the expanding school population. For several years, Bruce Shulkey was the largest elementary school in Fort Worth. Our school celebrated its 60th anniversary in September 2018.
Today, we have about 525 students from many countries around the world in twenty-eight classrooms. We have a LINC unit, SEAS unit, and three Newcomer classes. Our faculty and students work hard and always strive for success.
