TRACE and Blanco Vista Community Schools

August 19, 2019 10:49 pm

The TRACE and Blanco Vista communities of new homes in San Marcos TX have elementary schools right in the communities. Students and parents alike enjoy the convenience of neighborhood schools and the camaraderie it helps build with other families.

Rodriguez Elementary School is brand new this year in TRACE. The school is part of the San Marcos Consolidated ISD. The school name honors local educational pioneers Velia R. Cavazos, Carlos Rodriguez, and Solia Rodriguez, who are all members of the Rodriguez family.

The school is expected to have about 340 students for the first school year. Numbers are expected to increase as the TRACE community fills with homes and residents. The school will incorporate state-of-the-art learning environments to replace traditional classrooms.

TRACE developers donated about 12 acres for the school campus. The two story brick and glass building will cover 90,000 square feet. Fourth and fifth graders will be on the ground floor and the lower grades will occupy the second floor. Rodriguez Elementary will be the district’s seventh elementary school. A community fire station will be located a few blocks away from the school.

Blanco Vista Elementary School is part of the very desirable Hays County ISD. The school emphasizes respect for diversity and has several language immersion programs. In 2017-2018 Blanco Vista Elementary had 814 students. Each classroom has two computers in addition to the 2 computer labs on campus. Students can also participate in after-school clubs, a gifted and talented program and other extracurricular activities.
