New Braunfels (Texas) breaks ground on second high school

March 30, 2023
The district's ninth-grade center will be converted into Long Creek High School.

The New Braunfels (Texas) District has broken ground on a project to convert its ninth-grade center to a high school.

Community Impact reports that the new school will be the second high school in the New Braunfels district. It has been named Long Creek High School.

In the first phase of construction, a three-story classroom wing will be built next to the existing building.

Phase 2 of the construction will add a two-story building that will add an auditorium, black box theater and scene shop. New fine arts classrooms will be used for choir, drama and dance. Among the new athletic facilities included in this phase is an auxiliary gym.

“The building has served us well since it was first built in 2012, first as a middle school and currently as the Ninth Grade Center," School Board President Nancy York said. "With the continued growth in our community, this will not be the last school we build or need or will it be the last high school to be built. With this new building, we can continue our mission to engage, empower and learn for every student, every day.”

Funding for the construction comes from a 2021 bond package approved by voters.
