New Caney ISD has been the fastest growing Houston area district for the last three years, each year we add approximately 1,000 new students. To accommodate the rapid growth, New Caney ISD will open two new middle schools and make district-wide attendance zone adjustments.
NCISD is proud to welcome Woodridge Forest Middle School and New Caney Middle School into the NCISD family and will open their doors in August 2014.
Woodridge Forest Middle School is located 1.5 miles east of US 59 on Northpark Drive, in the Woodridge Forest subdivision. The New Caney 6th Grade campus will re-open in August 2014 as New Caney Middle School and will encompass grades 6th through 8th.
Both schools will offer the same quality of academic, athletic and extracurricular programs our students and families are accustomed.
