WRA and its partners understand our district's desire to move beyond the boundaries of our classrooms to provide the type of education our students need - and that's inquiry-based, hands-on learning. Our teachers guide our students to question, create and problem-solve, and WRA truly understands the inventive spaces needed for that type of thinking and exploration."

CLYDE CISD

Clyde CISD has been a client of WRA since 2006. In partnership with WRA, the district has had two successful bond elections and eight projects. These projects include a new replacement elementary school, new high school auditorium, a new football stadium and field house, and now a recent addition/renovation to Clyde Junior High School.

"Clyde CISD passed a bond package in May of 2016 with the help of WRA Architects. We could not be happier that we used WRA Architects. From start to finish they did an outstanding job. They helped design our entire communication plan with websites, brochures, social media, the works for the bond planning and promotion which turned out very well, with a successful bond passage. They followed the visuals and videos of what the project would look like at completion and it turned out great. The last phase was the design where they paid close attention to details, and again things turned out outstanding. I cannot say enough about WRA and their excellent service."

GALLAGHER Construction SERVICES

"WRA has been a huge asset to school districts and professional partners when it comes to bond planning, data analytics, and gathering local intelligence. We have worked with WRA on millions of dollars of projects and the company has successfully helped school districts from start to finish with their bond elections. The general public typically has limited knowledge and understanding of how school bonds work, or the necessity of them as they pertain to building new facilities."
