TYLER - TYLER ISD has broken ground on three new middle schools totaling 455,000 sf as part of a $160.5 million bond program. All three middle schools are expected to open in fall 2015. Each campus has an estimated cost of $26 million, according to state filings.

A 155,000-sf campus that has yet to be named is under construction at 2445 Three Lakes Pkwy. When completed, the campus will have a functional capacity of about 1,000 students.

The “H”-shaped building will include a two-story wing containing classrooms and a one-story wing housing a gym, cafeteria, fine arts area, and locker rooms. The two wings will be connected by a library.

At 2926 Garden Valley Road, a new 150,000-sf Boulter Middle School is under construction behind the current Boulter campus, which will be demolished after the new school is completed.

The new Boulter is also scheduled to open fall 2015. The three-story campus will have more than 40 classrooms and feature space for fine arts programs, a cafeteria, and a gym.

The new 150,000-sf Moore MST Magnet School is under construction at 2101 Devine St. The new school is being built on six acres on the north side of the current campus’ lot. The new entrance will face E. Devine St. instead of S. Tipton Ave. as it does now.

The classroom portion of the building will be three stories, the athletics area two stories and the fine arts area one story. The campus also will feature a courtyard, football field and track.

As a magnet school specializing in math, science and technology, Moore offers advanced level math courses, science enrichment courses such as astronomy, meteorology and environmental science and integrates technology into all the courses.
