The Comal Independent School District is preparing to open its fourth high school, Davenport High, this coming fall, and is offering a one-time grandfather option to current Canyon High ninth and 10th grade students residing inside the DHS attendance boundaries. Students will have that opportunity between Monday, Jan. 27, through Friday, Jan. 31.
Interested CHS students must complete the grandfather transfer form within this one-week time period in order to remain at CHS. Students who choose to stay at CHS will complete their high school years there.
In addition, current Danville Middle School eighth grade students with an older sibling who will attend CHS next school year are eligible to attend CHS.
The grandfather transfer form will be available on the district website during the open time, Jan. 27-31. Click here for more grandfathering information.
Davenport High, located at 23255 FM 3009 just past Schoenthal Road in the Garden Ridge area, will open with grades ninth through 11th in August 2020. It maintains the same attendance boundaries as Danville Middle School, which includes Morningside Elementary and Garden Ridge Elementary.
Comal ISD takes great pride in offering a wide range of programs to its students, and students at DHS will have many academic, athletic, fine arts and career and technology programs from which to choose.
The DHS Wolves will offer a full slate of athletic choices in which to compete including cross country, golf, tennis, track and field, swimming and diving, cheer, baseball, basketball, football, soccer and volleyball.
