Two new Frisco ISD schools to open at Hollyhock
The quality of education offered by the highly regarded Frisco Independent School District, ranked among the top 1% of all Texas school districts by Niche, is one of the major reasons many families choose new homes in Hollyhock.
While the established Frisco ISD schools serving Hollyhock are highly rated, two brand-new Frisco ISD schools are planned to open right by the community in the next two years.
Here’s what we know so far about the new elementary and high school campuses coming to Hollyhock.
New elementary school
A new Frisco ISD elementary school is planned to open at Hollyhock in August 2021, following the district’s announcement that it is accelerating its construction timetable for the new campus.
The school will be located northeast of FM 423 and Rockhill Parkway, on a Hollyhock site purchased by Frisco ISD from Newland.
Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2020, and the campus is planned to open in August 2021, in time for the 2021-22 school year. Frisco ISD has said that it will create attendance zones for the new school in fall 2020.
For now, the school is known as Elementary School #43, and the district is welcoming name suggestions from members of the Frisco ISD community. Please email Susan Dye at DyeSu@friscoisd.org with a name suggestion and the rationale behind it.
FISD plans to use a modified version of a previous elementary school design for the new Hollyhock school, making changes to create more open and flexible spaces, which are ideal for collaboration and active learning.
New high school
Frisco ISD plans to open its 12th high school in 2022 at Hollyhock. Described by the district as the “school of tomorrow,” it will be located near Teel and Rockhill parkways, adjacent to the new PGA of America headquarters now under development next to Hollyhock.
Frisco ISD listened closely to students during the design process for the new high school, and that resulted in a number of unique features.
For example, based on input, the academic portion of the campus will be three stories to allow students and staff to get from class to class efficiently. Students also requested more outdoor learning spaces, flexible furniture, writable surfaces and open spaces.
Featuring a “Texas modern” architectural design, the new high school will have a natural color palette, with stone throughout the interior and exterior.
Frisco ISD said that in its research, students were consistently inspired by contemporary, modern architecture with windows, wide hallways, and a compact, efficient footprint.
The open-concept library will be located on the third floor, where it will overlook the commons and a courtyard designed with art students in mind. The library will be collaborative by design, and collaboration will be a focus throughout other areas of the campus, from the teacher workrooms to the indoor and outdoor commons areas. The courtyards will have intentional learning spaces designed for small and large groups.
Currently, Hollyhock students attend Newman Elementary School, Trent Middle School and Memorial High School. See the latest Texas Education Agency ratings for Frisco ISD and the campuses serving Hollyhock.
