ABOUT

Twelve Bridges High School is in momentum! The remaining acreage has been purchased. HMC Architects and Flint Builders were selected for this project. We received all the environmental documenting and permitting. We officially broke ground in March of 2019 and are on track for completion of the new high school at Twelve Bridges in 2021-2022. Driving by, you can see the progress pictured above.
