This Week's Houston Deal Sheet

Waller ISD will build its second elementary school in Bridgeland after buying a 19-acre parcel from The Howard Hughes Corp., the developer of the master-planned community.

Development in Bridgeland has given rise to five new schools, with more on the way.

The land is in Prairieland Village, at the intersection of Conservation Crossing and Hilltopping Drive. The planned school will serve 850 students and support the projected population growth for Prairieland Village and Creekland Village, subdivisions of Bridgeland. 

This will be the fifth public elementary school in Bridgeland, including three Cypress-Fairbanks ISD elementary schools already operating there. More schools will be built as Bridgeland continues to grow out of Cypress and into Waller and Hockley. 

The first Waller ISD elementary school will also be served by Katy ISD in the southern portion of Prairieland Village, according to Bridgeland’s website. Waller ISD will break ground on that school in spring 2023, according to the Howard Hughes news release.
