Aldine ISD will open six new schools when the 2018-19 school year begins on Monday, Aug. 20. In addition, Francis Elementary School and Johnson Elementary School will have new facilities for the upcoming school year.
The schools were built with funds from the $798 million bond referendum Aldine voters overwhelmingly passed (by 72%) in November of 2015. The district will open one career and technical high school, three middle schools and two EC/Pre-K Centers.
The Dr. Archie Blanson Career and Technical Education High School will be located at 311 West Road. It is named after former Deputy Superintendent Dr. Archie Blanson. Ben Ibarra will serve as the school’s principal.
The three middle schools that are opening are Dr. Viola M. Garcia Middle School, Marine Jones Middle School and Steve Mead Middle School.
