South of Kingwood’s HCA Medical Center, contractors have made slow but steady progress on the site for New Caney High School #3 between Sorters-McClellan Road and US59. I reported last November that they were pouring concrete. They still are. But there’s a lot more of it on the ground of the 80+ acre site. About half of the site is now covered with gray concrete. However, the most striking feature is the intensely green detention pond. The grass lining it looks more like a thick blanket of neon green faux fur.

School to Open in Fall 2022
The NCISD Board of Trustees approved an award of construction contract on May 18 for New Caney High School #3 to Gamma Construction. Gamma should finish construction in time for 2022-23 school year.
New Caney ISD’s enrollment grew 31 percent between 2011 and 2016. That ranked NCISD first in the greater Houston area and fourth in the state for percentage enrollment growth. Eventually, the high school will hold 2,250 students. However, the school will open with only 1,350.
Construction in the District has already caused a realignment of school zones. To see if your student will be affected, see this New Caney ISD web page.
