New Junior High Name Approved as Grand Lakes Junior High, Zones Approved

TOMBALL - The Tomball ISD Board of Trustees officially named Junior High #4 as Grand Lakes Junior High and approved the new attendance zones at the February 11, 2020 Board Meeting.

Grand Lakes Junior High School, funded by the community’s overwhelming support of Bond 2017, opens to students in August 2021 and will serve grades 7 and 8.

The new junior high sits on the Elmer and Dorothy Beckendorf Educational Complex at the corner of Grand Parkway/Hwy. 99 and Cypress-Rosehill Road in Tomball. The complex also houses Grand Oaks Elementary, the district’s 11th elementary school, opening August 2020, and the state-of-the-art Stadium and Community Center, set to open August 2021.

The new attendance zones for the new elementary and new junior high school have also both been approved by the Board. Using a set of guiding principles and target enrollments for several impacted schools, the District Zone Committee worked alongside the demographer to produce plans to realign attendance zones to achieve balance and account for growth.

The elementary plan was approved in December 2019, while the junior high plan was reworked and approved in February 2020.
