CCISD Education Village Leads the Way

As Texas school districts begin to embrace the concept of education “villages,” it is worth remembering that the Clear Creek Independent School District Education Village led the way.


Combining Sandra Mossman Elementary, Bayside Intermediate and Clear Falls High School on one 144-acre campus, the first education village in Texas (it was completed nearly 10 years ago) provides area students — including those living in Coastal Point — with a unique, collaborative and exceptional learning experience.


Having three campuses on one site permits the schools to share resources and technology, including a campus-wide greenhouse, integrated computer technology and a biotechnology lab for engineering, health science and agricultural science classes.


High school students serve as role models and tutors for their younger counterparts, but the three campuses connect in other ways. Band, orchestra, choir and theater performances combine students from all three schools, for example. A preschool program at Mossman allows high school students in child development classes to practice what they learn.


Some of the unique features of the Village include:


  • The schools sit on three separate campuses with their own driveways and roads in and out
  • Between all three campuses there are six gyms
  • The schools share a serving line in the cafeteria, and the same heating ventilating and air conditioning system.
  • State-of-the-art Biotechnology Lab can be utilized in Engineering, Health Science and Ag Science programs
  • Information Technology Lab leading to certifications in A+ and Net+
  • Technology certification opportunities include Microsoft Office Specialist, Certified Nursing Assistant, Pharmacy Tech and Welding
  • A retention pond behind the Education Village was transformed into a unique outdoor space that is part classroom/part environmental project.
  • In the cafeteria, the walls can be removed, opening up the facility into a massive room for large groups. There also is a shared courtyard with an amphitheater and outdoor learning areas


It’s education for the 21st century and it’s available to your children when you make the move to Coastal Point.
