New Home Communities Zoned to Lake Travis Independent School District

First Day at West Cypress Elementary

First Day of School at the brand new Lake Travis ISD Campus: West Cypress Hills Elementary! An excited Kindergartener and 2nd grader are greeted with huge smiles from the Lake Travis Cavalettes. This is just one example of how Lake Travis ISD works to build community among all campuses.

It is one of the main reason that the Lake Travis Real Estate market has been growing and expanding each year: Lake Travis Independent School district is one of the most coveted school districts in the Austin area. In fact, the latest news (as of September 2014) is that ALL Lake Travis ISD campuses exceeded state accountability standards! Every single campus significantly surpassed the minimum target scores in all categories. Not only have these campuses achieved academic success but they have one of the most well know athletic programs in the state of Texas. Lake Travis ISD also has a very active and supportive school board that consistently strives to continue the tradition of excellence.

The Lake Travis Independent School district is comprised of 9 campuses.There are 6 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school.

Rocky Creek- Bee Cave

Since I just posted an article about the growth in Bee Cave and Lakeway, I thought I would highlight some of the newer communities in the area- starting today with Rocky Creek. If you have never been on a drive out hwy 71, towards Hamilton Pool Road, get in your car and go today! It is peaceful and the landscape is stunning. It makes for a great lazy Sunday drive. Rocky Creek is located in this gorgeous hill country setting- it’s on Hamilton Pool Rd just past Crumley Ranch Road.

For those of us who have lived in Austin for awhile, Rocky Creek certainly seems “far out there” but really with all the new development in Lakeway,  it is not far at all. The Hill Country Galleria is only about six minutes away. And, all you really need is a great mall, right? But seriously, there are grocery stores, great restaurants,  Bee Cave Central Park, and  Lakeway Regional Medical Center will be open in April which is located only about ten minutes from Rocky Creek.

Another appealing aspect of Rocky Creek is that the students will go to the Lake Travis School District. Bee Cave Elementary-Lake Travis Middle School- Lake Travis High School. All fabulous, highly rated schools!

There are huge surrounding easements on both sides of Rocky Creek that have been dedicated to Nature Conservancy of Texas, meaning there are lots of open green spaces…although talk to the builders for more about the facts about that. What I do know for sure is that there are many nature trails in and around the community. I’ve never been hiking on them but judging from the breath-taking surrounding scenery, I bet they are incredible. The community also has a pool and kids play area.

There are plans to build about 400 homes. Highland Homes and Drees are the builders. The prices range from the high $300s to the high $500s.

There is more information and some great photos on the developers site- Hillwood Communities.
