BRENHAM, WASHINGTON COUNTY - The new $14 million Alton Elementary School is underway in the 1300 block of South Market St.

Full construction on the 67,620-sf school will begin in June 2013 when the school district’s year ends. The new school should be ready for classes in the 2014-2015 school year. Alton currently has 533 students in grades prekindergarten to fourth.

This is the second new school campus for the Brenham School District in seven years. Brenham Elementary, located at 1000 W Blue Bell Rd., was completed in 2006 with an estimated construction cost of $8.2 million, according to state filings.

Additionally, renovations at the Brenham Middle School, located at 1600 S. Blue Bell Rd., are expected to begin during summer 2013. Assistant Superintendent Byron McAdams says this is virtually a new school in itself.
