The Katy Independent School District welcomed its ninth high school just in time for the 2020-2021 school year. The brand-new school had a construction budget of $206 million, and like most of Katy ISD's high schools, the district planned a natatorium as part of the new high school.
The new three-story high school was part of a voter-approved bond package of $748 million. The campus relieved overcrowding at Tompkins and Seven Lakes high schools and was built to accommodate growth in the district facilities. The high school itself includes regular classrooms, a performing arts center with seating for 900, science labs, food service, administration, as well as the natatorium, gymnasiums, and ancillary support areas.
Featured as the largest natatorium facility in Katy ISD with a seating capacity of 1,200, the pool will serve as a district-wide competition facility, hosting teams from other districts and fitness swimmers from the public. Pool reservations may be made from the district's website.
