The 13th middle school in Frisco ISD will be named for Billy Vandeventer and is scheduled to be completed in May of 2012 and open for the fall. He was the valedictorian of the Frisco High School Class of 1961 who taught in Frisco ISD for 26 years before retiring in 2003.
Vandeventer will be located on Independence on the East side of Richwoods. Under the current proposal, there will be an estimated 759 students. The following communities/neighborhoods proposed to attend Vanderventer are: Bella Vida Apartments, Castlebrook at Ridgeview, Courtney Manor Apartments, Estancia at Ridgeview Ranch, Fairway Villas at Ridgeview, Fairways of Ridgeview, Hunters Creek, Legends at Ridgeview Ranch, Ridgeview Ranch, Ridgeview Ranch Estates, Turnbridge Manor and Villas at Ridgeview Ranch.
One of the most interesting concepts that the school district and Richwoods are discussing is an entry gate towards the back of the school that would allow Richwoods students to enter and leave directly into the community.
Not to mention there is also another Frisco ISD Elementary School planned near the other new home development to the North of Richwoods called Lawler Park.
Sounds very convenient if you ask me!
