Laredo (Texas) district breaks ground on middle school

Oct. 1, 2021
The new Cigarroa Middle will replace the existing campus.

A 250,000-square-foot middle school is being constructed to replace an existing campus in the Laredo (Texas) school district. 

The new Cigarroa Middle School will sit on 23 acres and feature a three-story academic building with two wings each for sixth, seventh and eighth grade classes, reports LMT Online

The groundbreaking comes after a long dispute over geographical boundary lines between the Laredo and United school districts. The land Laredo bought for the new Cigarroa Middle was in the United district; the districts eventually agreed to alter their borders to place the school site within the Laredo district

The campus will also have a boys and girls gymnasium with restrooms, lockers, weight rooms, cheerleading and dance studio areas, and its own cafeteria for 450 students.

The students will have access to a new band hall/fine arts area featuring room for orchestra ensemble, band hall rehearsal, choir area, storage, multiple sound-proof practice areas, a library with a lecture hall and computer lab, and a special education and life-skills wing.

The school is designed by Sepulveda Associates and will be built by Leyendecker Construction.
