Tomball ISD held a groundbreaking ceremony Oct. 10 for its 205-acre Juergen Road complex, which will feature a new elementary, intermediate and high school funded by the district's 2021 bond package.
“Today is a day of celebration,” TISD Superintendent Martha Salazar Zamora said during the ceremony. “It is a day to give thanks to so many—many of you here and many who are not with us today—and a day to continue to bring our great community together.”
The schools will be built using funds from the 2021 bond. Bond funds include $32.55 million for the elementary school, $39.74 million for the intermediate school, and $195.59 million for the high school, Community Impact previously reported.
“That bond could not have been passed without the amazing support of the school board you see here and our community believing in the future of our great district,” Zamora said.
Construction on the campuses is six to seven months out, TISD Chief Financial Officer Jim Ross said.
During its April 12 meeting, the school board approved architectural services by PBK Architects for the elementary, IBI Group for the intermediate and Huckabee Architects for the high school, Community Impact previously reported.
“Here we will have at the complex our 23rd, 24th and 25th campuses,” Zamora said. “The future is very bright here in Tomball ISD.”
Ross said that construction on all three campuses will begin at the same time with the elementary and intermediate schools anticipated to open in August 2024 and the high school anticipated to open in August 2026.
