KATY [May 2, 2018] – As community development continues around the Cross Creek Ranch subdivision, today the magnified sounds of the Seven Lakes High School (SLHS) Spartan Drumline could be heard for blocks as the groundbreaking ceremony of Junior High #16 and High School #9 took place. Both schools will alleviate the thriving southwest quadrant of the district and provide relief to existing campuses that currently house students in the surrounding boundaries.
“Within the walls of these schools, future leaders will be taught, memories will be made and educational opportunities will prepare and inspire,” said Superintendent Lance Hindt. “The construction of these campuses will be a new opportunity for this neighborhood and our community at large, to invest in our students as they create their future,” added Hindt.
The buildings will be constructed as part of the 2017 voter-approved bond program. These educational facilities will not only be state-of-the-art buildings with collaborative spacing and leading edge technology, but they will be equipped with quality educators which make Katy ISD one of the best schools in the country. The construction of both facilities is another example of Katy ISD’s promise to the community to provide unparalleled learning experiences to all students.
Also participating in the ceremonial turning of dirt was the general contractors Drymalla and Satterfield & Pontikes as well as PBK Architects, Inc.
