The Montgomery (Texas) district is expected to break ground next month on a $43.4 million elementary school.
The Courier of Montgomery County reports that Creekside Elementary School is being built on a 20-acre site behind Lake Creek High School in Montgomery County.
Creekside Elementary will be a 95,000-square-foot facility with a maximum capacity of 900 students. The elementary school will help relieve crowding at the Keenan and Stewart Creek elementary campuses, officials said.
An expansion of Lake Creek High will break ground at the same time as the elementary school, the district says. The addition to the high school will accommodate a growth of 900 students at the school, for a total capacity of 2,500 students.
Funding for the construction projects comes from a $326 million bond package that voters approved in May 2022.
The architect is Huckabee.
