Last FBISD Board meeting, it was officially announced that FBISD is purchasing the land Newland set aside in Telfair for a high school.
But still, FBISD can't build a high school without a new bond. Its wait and see game

Unbelievable. Fort Bend has all these schools just sitting there half empty yet they want to build more schools. Actually, I suppose it really isn't unbelievable knowing how they operate.

But that's good for Fort Bend, right? Would you prefer overcrowded schools with overworked teachers?

Marshall High sits empty...$22 million......Willowridge, which is 3 miles away, sits emptier

FBISD always bend over for developers of major neighborhoods....the Sienna folks moaned and whined for a high school when you can see Elkins and Hightower

How could there be overcrowded schools when there are three high schools that are already at half capacity? Also, they just closed Willowridge? Why? Well, we all know the answers to the FBISD questions.

Sure, we could shift all the high school zones eastward and make better use of existing facilities.

But that would mean zoning people out of Clemens.

Medicare and Social Security reform stand a better chance.

I wonder what their concern was.

Even after Ridge Point opened up, Elkins and Hightower are both well over 2,000 students each. Hightower is closer to 3,000 students. Comparing apples and oranges here.

Put 600 from Elkins and 600 from Hightower into Willowridge and Marshall.

folks would run down 610 butt naked before they go there...I went to WHS and the things FBISD would do to keep us down when we had numbers was obvious...They broke us up in the 90s and sent areas 2 miles away way across town to Elkins and Dulles and we weren't overcrowded then...

They built Marshall in 2000 only to see no one fill it up..

It makes sense to rezone back into the area but you got alot of folks off Highway 6 who've began to smell themselves and thought the same areas they grew up in are too good for them now
