    • As of 2018 it had 748 students. It opened in 2018, was designed by Huckabee & Associates, and was built through contractor Paradigm Construction LLC, which the company Bond Program Management Services, used by Huffman ISD to manage its school bond programs, chose. The bond that had the school built was approved by voters in May 2016. Construction delays resulted after Hurricane Harvey. By December 2018 defects began to appear in the building, and Huffman ISD has frozen payments to the contractor. Lawsuits have been filed over the matter.[3]
