Goose Creek opens new Junior School

Goose Creek CISD to Hold Dedication Ceremony Sept. 29 for new E.F. Green Junior High

Goose Creek CISD will host an invitation-only ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for Edward Franklin “E.F.” Green Junior School on Wednesday, September 29th at 6 p.m. The 192,000 square foot, two-story building, located at 5737 E. Wallisville Road, is home to 1,100 students.

The campus, which opened August 18, 2021, was built to alleviate overcrowding in the district’s junior schools.

Green was the first Black educator to become a district-level administrator. Former principal at Carver High School, he served as deputy superintendent for curriculum and guidance, retiring after 48 years in education.

This campus is one of several new facilities built by funds from the $335 million bond, which was approved by GCCISD taxpayers in 2019. Pfluger Architects designed the facility and Pogue Construction was the general contractor.

Attendees will take part in a ribbon cutting followed by the dedication, which will include a cornerstone ceremony by the Goose Creek Masonic Lodge, Number 1192 and a student-led campus tour.
