Round Rock, Success high schools open in August

Construction is set to conclude this summer on two RRISD high schools, which will open Aug. 26 for the 2014–15 school year.

Round Rock High School Master Plan Phase 3 construction includes shifting the main entrance of the school from Lake Creek Drive to Deepwood Drive. The 139,569-square-foot expansion includes 40 classrooms, a culinary classroom and a mock courtroom for the school's criminal justice program.

The rebuilt campus includes a new administrative office and a school store. Tim Strucely, director of facilities and construction, said the store will be used by RRHS' business academy.

To date, the cost for Phase 3 is $25,481,354, said Corey Ryan, RRISD associate director of community relations. Architecture firm PBK designed Phase 3 for the school.

RRISD will also open a new Success High School campus at 500 Gattis School Rd. The alternative education high school was previously housed in portable classroom units at Stony Point and Westwood high schools. RRISD trustees approved $25 million for the 69,885-square-foot campus in August 2013.
