We have moved!
Please note: We have moved to Wharton Village, the temporary academic campus that will house us while our current school is rebuilt as part of the 2012 Bond Program. Wharton Village is located at 1101 Taft St., just north of Gregory Lincoln Education Center near the corner of West Dallas and Taft streets. We expect to remain at this temporary location throughout the construction process. Our new campus is expected to be ready by fall 2018.
¡Nos hemos mudado!
