Over the next two years, Taft High School in the Northside ISD plans to cap attendance. What this means is that any new students, who move into certain parts of the Taft attendance zone will be temporarily capped and moved to Brennan High School which still has some room, and is very close to Taft. Most students who live in and around the Alamo Ranch Community attend Taft High.
This cap is necessary because next school year(2015-2016), Taft’s enrollment will be almost 3,100 students, and will continue to grow to about 3,500 students before the next high school opens to provide some relief. The Taft High School zone is the fastest growing area in the Northside ISD.
Approximately 150 to 200 new students in the Taft attendance zone will be affected each year for the next two years until the new and yet-to-be named, “Kallison Ranch Area” high school opens in the summer of 2017. All those students who are capped to Brennan will be provided bus transportation. See Map for Capped Taft HS areas.
The cap will only affect students, who become new residents in the identified zones on or after June 5, 2015. Middle school students in the areas feeding Taft are eligible to attend Taft providing they are residents in these areas BEFORE June 5, 2015. Some students who moved into capped neighborhoods of Briscoe, Zachry, and Connally middle schools could be affected when they become freshmen.
To determine if your home address is impacted, go to Northside Boundaries and Buses, and enter your address.
Northside recently broke ground on the new “Kallison Ranch” high school which is located about five miles west of Taft High School off FM 471 W at the Medina Valley ISD boundary line. The Culebra Road(FM 471) corridor, as well as the Potranco Road corridor outside of Loop 1604 are both high growth areas. The New “Kallison Ranch” High School will become the District’s 11th comprehensive high school.
