Texarkana, USA is a exceptional place to live and work!I grew up on the Arkansas side(Graduated from AR HS & Texas A&M-TXK with BS, MS) and I have lived the past 20+ years on the Texas side. I have two girls that have gone and one still attending Morriss Elementary.The TISD Martha and Josh Morriss Mathematics & Engineering Elementary School offers an innovative engineering curriculum along with an accelerated mathematics program that has provided a rigorous and seamless STEM education that serves as a national model for how young children can become engaged and educated. All of the local school systems have made great strides to provide challenging academic programs. There are 5 High schools located within Texarkana, TASD, TISD, L.E.ISD, PGISD & Trinity Christian School. We could not be more pleased with the academic opportunities within Texarkana, USA for educational advancement (Texarkana College, Texas A&M-TXK and U of AR-Hope-TXK). The I-30 corridor has exploded w growth over the past 15 years!The completion of I-49 and I-69 will only add to the economic development of this entire region. There are a world of recreational choices within this region; whether it's athletics, leisurely activities or you are a serious sportsman, this region is for you! The Ouachita Mountains are just to the north or black water bayous to the south; our regions is idealy positioned for the best of all worlds! And if you still crave a BIG city, Dallas, Little Rock or Shreveport is just a short drive away! I've moved away twice in my life, but I'm proud to call TEXARKANA "my home!"
