The School Zone: News

 

Thanks to the support of voters in Spring Branch ISD who approved a $898M bond in 2017, revitalization of schools and facilities continues to be evident in many locations across the district. Students and staff will have modern, collaborative spaces to learn, grow and stretch the bounds of their Limitless Curiosity.

Take a look at the exciting Bond 2017 work happening around the district this spring:

Groundbreaking 

Bunker Hill Elementary
While the students, staff and parents of this 65-year-old school have maintained its friendly and cozy vibe, the current building is showing its age. More room is needed to accommodate growing enrollment and modernize learning spaces. A new school, almost double the square footage of the current campus, is now under construction and will include updated technologies, more collaborative and outdoor learning spaces and an enhanced library.

Scheduled to open in August 2022, Principal Dana Johnson said of the new school, “I am most excited that we kept our connection with nature. I can’t wait to see the elements of stone, wood and natural light: it’s going to be beautiful.”

Almost Ready!

Hunters Creek Elementary
Students and staff at Hunters Creek Elementary are preparing to move into their brand-new school at the start of the next academic school year in August 2021. 

The first completely new school of the 2017 Bond features a courtyard that opens up to the entire campus to provide outdoor learning space. All classrooms have collaboration areas outside the classrooms, and the library is designed with exploration in mind and flexible furniture arrangements to accommodate various uses.

“We cannot tell you how excited we are about the amenities that are being provided at the new Hunters Creek Elementary,” Travis Stanford, Associate Superintendent for Operations, said.
