Serving The Community

Built in 1950, this 60-year old school’s original campus had outlived its useful life, and repairs and upgrades were no longer the most economical solution for continuing the building’s effective use. The new replacement school shown here was constructed on a new site across town to more equitably serve the community. The building includes a cafetorium, gym, clinic, media center/library, multi-purpose room, 38 regular classrooms, plus Music, Art, Special Ed, and Computer Labs.

"After difficulties with two other architectural firms, Castleberry ISD hired WRA Architects in early 2010 for bond planning, election PR consulting and other resultant projects. Since then, we have awarded additional projects to WRA. Compared to other firms, WRA stands apart in how well they listen to us and provide what we need."

John Ramos, Castleberry ISD Superintendent
