It’s bigger, better and ready to welcome the Bulldogs back as the doors of the new Royse City High School will open for business Sept. 1.

The new school is 161,000 square feet and is located on Farm-to-Market Road 2642. The Royse City School District Board of Trustees toured the school at a special board meeting held last Tuesday.

It includes a black box theater, where the award winning RCHS One Act Play cast and debate students can use hone their skills.

It features a practice room spefically designed for drill team members and cheerleaders that has a platform floor that adds a little bounce to one’s step.

The field house has rows of black and gold weight work stations.

The gym features a four sided black and gold scoreboard that hangs from the ceiling as a fierce, colorful bulldog is seen on the gym wall as he’s flanked by the United States and Texas flags.

Art students have more tools to help them create their works as the art room features numerous tilted white tables.

The cafeteria has three lines to provide students faster access during their limited lunch times.

Office employees have room to walk and the principal offices are not crowded as they are more spacious in the school’s office.

Former school board member Nancy Crowell, whose husband, Scott is currently on the board is thrilled with the new school.

“ This is just great and is going to be an unbelievable learning environment for our students,” Crowell said.

The board also swore in recently elected board member and former RCISD athletic director Charlie Carroll and returning board member Billy Webb at the meeting.
