Frenship High unveils new freshman campus

LUBBOCK, Texas -

Frenship ISD unveiled its new freshman center.

It's an extension of the high school entirely dedicated to ninth grade students. It's part of the 2014 bond election that also included construction for Frenship's eighth elementary campus.

The freshman facility is intended to help the district keep up with its exponential growth and alleviate the enrollment at Frenship High.

Principal Heath Simpson said this is the first time Tigers from across the district get to be Tigers together.

"We're a one horse town when it comes to our high school," Simpson said. "We're able to bring them all together and basically make sure we put them in the right direction for the next three years of their lives past this place."

The campus is more than 170,000 square feet and includes a media center, more than 50 classrooms, eight computer labs and two full-sized gyms.
