KATY - Katy ISD plans to open its seventh high school in fall 2013 at 4400 Falcon Landing Blvd.

Construction costs are estimated at $109.3 million, with a total budget allocation of $137.4 million. The campus is a refined repeat of the 610,500-sf Seven Lakes High School. The school is projected to service 865 students in its first year, and to have an enrollment of 3,251 by 2017.

Enrollment in Katy ISD schools increased by 1,840 students leading into the 2011-12 school year, bringing the total number of students enrolled in the district to 64,294.

The district has been among the fastest growing in the United States over the first decade of the 21st century in which it grew by 76 percent.

Enrollment at Seven Lakes High School is projected to increase to around 6,133 students by 2017 if no relief is provided. That number decreases to 3,175 students when high school seven enters the picture. Katy High School, projected to hit 5,581 students by 2022, would also see relief.

In the next ten years, 34,442 new houses are expected to come to Katy, and the southwest quadrant of the city is expected to see the bulk of the housing development over the next five years.
