After several months of hearing name suggestions and allowing community input, the New Braunfels ISD board of trustees officially named the district’s second high school campus New Braunfels Long Creek High School at a Dec. 14 board meeting.

The name was suggested by several members of the community and refers to the creek that exists on the grounds of the new campus, located at 4150 Klein Meadows, New Braunfels.

In August, students at the Ninth Grade Center will move into the facility, which currently serves as New Braunfels Middle School, and students attending the current middle school will move to the campus currently under construction at Settlers Crossing.

The campus is expected to expand to include tenth grade during the 2024-25 school year or once the district’s enrollment for ninth- to 12th-grade students reaches 3,000.

Plans to expand the building and add fine arts and career and technical education facilities will be included in a proposed 2021 bond expected to go before voters in November.
