Smaller class size is another advantage at Hebron, which can impact student performance and college acceptance. For more information call 469-713-5183.

Planning For Your Children's Future

Realizing the importance of quality schools and their impact on the community, the Castle Hills development team took an active role to enhance the future for resident children by creating The Castle Hills Schools Foundation. This unique, nonprofit organization is expected to generate $1 million annually in perpetuity and is funded by a fee of 1/2 of 1 percent of the sales price on the transfer of all real property within the community. The system assures that families living in Castle Hills will continue to receive innovative, generously funded educational support for their children for many years to come.

Since its inception in 1999, the Schools Foundation has distributed over $9.6 million to local schools and scholarships. Castle Hills Elementary School, Independence Elementary School, Creek Valley Middle School, Killian Middle School and Hebron High School have received the majority of the funds, but any non-profit school with five or more students from Castle Hills is eligible. Castle Hills homeowners serve on the Foundation Advisory Boards and make recommendations on how each school uses their awarded funds. Funds may be applied to teacher salary supplements, additional technology purchases for classrooms, subsidized day care centers, and other services as needs are determined.

For more information email Vicki Vaughn or call 972-410-6500.
