New Katy ISD Elementary School to Open Next Fall for Residents of Cross Creek Ranch
FULSHEAR, TX – Beginning in the fall of 2014, the Katy Independent School District will open the doors to a brand-new elementary school for families in the west Houston master-planned community of Cross Creek Ranch.

“Our schools are A-plus at every grade level,” states Rob Bamford, general manager of the award-winning, 3,200-acre community. “Time and again we hear from residents who state ‘quality of schools’ as the top reason they choose Cross Creek Ranch.”
Residents currently attend Shafter Elementary of the Katy ISD and Huggins Elementary of the Lamar Consolidated ISD.

More than 30,000 trees have been planted in the community since 2006 and close to half of its 1,000 homes are adjacent to native naturalized landscape, designated trails and parks.
Cross Creek Ranch’s resort-style amenities include the Cross Creek Water Park, a spacious fitness center and sports complex with tennis courts, basketball court, sand volleyball court and playgrounds for all ages. The community also is home to the Essence Café, a charming, quaint dining spot open to the public serving a variety of breakfast and lunch favorites.
