GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — Students at Georgetown Independent School District’s Wagner Middle School finally got to move into their new school after the Thanksgiving weekend.
The new school, located at 1621 Rockridge Ln., was slated to open in August but construction delays forced the open date back to the end of November. Since the start of the school year, the middle school students were housed at the WIlliams Elementary campus since the building was vacant.
On Monday morning, students started their day at the old Williams Elementary School but then buses transported all the students over to the new campus, along with escorts from the superintendent, parents and staff. The school’s grand opening was met with cheerleaders from East View High School and the drumline.
Wagner Middle School cost $55 million to build and was paid for by a voter-approved bond. The new school was built to incorporate learning centers for STEM and features movable glass wall partitions that allow the spaces to be used for individual classrooms or large group learning areas.
