PTYThe new Price T. Young Elementary School opened in August of 2017 as one of three new elementary schools and a renovated facility to serve Marshall ISD students in grades K-5. The project was part of the Legacy 2017 building program born out of the passage of a $109,200,000.00 bond issue approved by MISD voters in May 2015. The new school was constructed on the site of the old Price T. Young Middle School, which was closed following the 2016-2017 school year with the old building set to be demolished after the opening of the new school. Huckabee, Inc., served as the architect for the Legacy 2017 building program, with WRL General Contractors, Ltd., serving as the general contractor for PTY Elementary. Project Manager for the Legacy 2017 building program was Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. (LAN), of Houston, Texas. The new school consolidated the former J.H. Moore Elementary School and the former George Washington Carver Elementary School in to one new PTY Elementary in west Marshall.

The original Price T. Young Junior High opened on the site in 1964, housing students in grades 7-8 that formerly attended Pemberton High School. In 1971, Pemberton Junior High was made into an all-seventh grade school. The school was renamed following the death of Mr. Young, who was serving as Principal, in 1975. When MISD was reorganized in 1981, Price T. Young became one of two middle schools in MISD serving students in grades 5-6 and was renamed Price T. Young Middle School. The school was closed and the original building demolished following the opening of Price T. Young Elementary School on the current site, as part of MISD's Legacy 2017 building program.

J.H. Moore and Carver schools were closed following the 2016-17 school year, and students from those campuses were consolidated into the new PTY Elementary. In recognition of the long heritage of JHM, GWC and PTY Middle School, the new PTY includes areas that have been named to honor past educators and campus communities that make up the new school. The Cathy Marshall Administrative Offices honor Mrs. Cathy Marshall, who served a record 17 years as principal at PTY Middle School beginning in 1989. The J.H. Moore Learning Center honors the namesake of the old J.H. Moore Elementary. Mr. Moore was the driving force behind the organization of Park School, the first elementary school in NW Marshall in 1902. The Coach Michelle Van Dyke Gymnasium is named in honor of Michelle Van Dyke, who graduated from ETBU in 198 and went on to serve as P.E. coach at J.H. Moore for 24 years until the school was closed in 2017. The new school's hallways pay honor to the campus communities that are represented in its history -- GW Carver Hallway, Dogan Hallway, Park Hallway and New Town Hallway.
