Tomball ISD’s fourth junior high school, Grand Lakes Junior High, is expected to open in August, accommodating 1,500 students in grades 7-8, according to district officials. The school, located within the Elmer & Dorothy Beckendorf Educational Complex near Cypress Rosehill Road and the Grand Parkway, has a total budget of $50.95 million and is funded by the district’s 2017 $275 million bond referendum.
Grand Lakes will be the first campus to enroll students bound for both Tomball and Tomball Memorial high schools, as new junior high school boundaries approved in February 2020 will take effect for the upcoming 2021-22 school year.
Also funded by the bond referendum, the district’s 10,000-seat stadium and community center is scheduled to open in August within the Elmer & Dorothy Beckendorf Educational Complex. The project has a total budget of $48.54 million.
