Trustees approve boundaries for new high school

By Messenger Staff | Published Wednesday, December 18, 2013

The attendance boundaries for V.R. Eaton High School, Northwest ISD’s third comprehensive high school, were approved at Monday’s school board meeting.

Eaton High School, which will open in August 2015 in the north Fort Worth/Haslet area, will serve students who live:

n west of Interstate 35 West and south of the Tarrant County line and

n in the Denton and Wise county portions of the Sendera Ranch Development.

Students who live in the attendance zones for Haslet, Sendera Ranch, Thompson, Peterson, Nance and Schluter elementary schools are within the Eaton High School attendance zone.

Students who live in the Tarrant County portion of the Seven Hills Elementary School attendance zone will also attend V.R. Eaton High School.

The attendance boundary was based on a recommendation by Northwest ISD administration and a parent advisory committee comprised of parents from Chisholm Trail and Wilson middle schools and Peterson, Sendera Ranch, Thompson, Haslet, Nance and Schluter elementary schools.

When the new high school opens, it will be for ninth and 10th grades only. Another grade level will be added each year until it has ninth through 12 grades in the 2017-18 school year.

The campus is named in honor of Wise County resident and rancher V.R. Eaton. Eaton served as a member on the first Northwest ISD school board and assisted in the organization of the district’s consolidation.
