Lake Highlands Middle School Breaks Ground

Making Richardson ISD History: Lake Highlands Middle School Breaks Ground

Dallas, Texas – The history of a project tells a story and for Cadence McShane Construction Company, it is an honor to be part of that narrative.

Richardson ISD’s Lake Highlands Junior High opened its doors in the fall of 1960, housing both the junior and senior high schools until 1965. They then served 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students for over 30 years before the Lake Highlands Freshmen Center opened in 1999.

“This campus has a longstanding place in the fabric of this neighborhood and the new building is going to build upon those traditions,” stated Regina Harris, Board President, Single-Member District 4 of RISD. “The entire design and construction process of this Lake Highlands Middle School transformation is also going to serve as the model programming the district plans to use for all other middle school transformations.”

The school will soon begin a new chapter as they partner with general contractor, Cadence McShane, and architect, Perkins+Will, to break ground on the new Lake Highlands Middle School. This transition to the middle school model will result in the first ever 6th through 8th grade campus in Richardson ISD.
