Attendance zones for the new elementary school being built in The Groves were approved at the February 14, 2017, meeting of the Humble ISD Board of Trustees.
The Groves, as expected, is zoned to the new elementary school. Other areas (see list) have been designated as Flex Zones. Families wishing to exercise their Flex Zone Option should submit a transfer application by March 31.
Q: What is a Flex Zone?
In Flex Zones, students have an option of attending the school to which they are zoned or attending the new school with bus transportation provided. Flex Zones were developed in response to community input and were preferred by 59% in a survey of parents and staff from Atascocita Springs, Eagle Springs, and Lakeshore elementary schools.
Q: Why would I want to attend the new elementary school in The Groves?
The new elementary school is home to a Spanish Immersion Program. The campus shares a multi-million dollar YMCA Adaptive Sports Complex funded by donors. The school was designed for innovation, creativity and exploration.
Q: I live in Humble ISD, outside The Groves and outside a Flex Zone. Can my children attend the new elementary school?
Yes. Students who live in the district can attend the new school. Parents who live outside The Groves and outside a flex zone may submit a general transfer request and are responsible for providing transportation. This is consistent with all general transfer requests throughout Humble ISD. Any family wishing to attend the new elementary school should submit a transfer application by March 31.
Q: How can I learn more about the new school?
You’re invited to an evening with Dr. Brian Peters, principal of the new school, on Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 6:30 p.m. at Eagle Springs Elementary School. Dr. Peters will give a brief presentation on his background, beliefs and philosophy of education and he will also answer questions about the new building and what opportunities will be offered.

Q: Will high school boundaries change?
There is no plan to change high school boundaries in this area at this time. If you are currently zoned to AHS, you remain zoned to AHS. This includes all of the Eagle Springs community. If you are currently zoned to SCHS, you remain zoned to SCHS. Most of The Groves is zoned to SCHS, with one section having the option of AHS or SCHS.
Q: Which middle school will my child go to?
Work on boundaries for the new middle school being built in The Groves will begin in partnership with the community. Middle school boundaries will not change high school boundaries.
