This 2018-19 year, is our inaugural year and we have come out striking. The campus is beautiful and more than capable of comfortably facilitating the over 1250 students that attend each day. Our faculty and staff have been planning and are ready to guide your students into new opportunities.
Pieper Ranch is the district's first New Tech Network campus. With New Tech Network, your students have opportunities to collaborate across classes; working as teams or individually with project based learning, your students will gain the skills necessary to perform in our ever-changing technological world and be ready for the rigors and expectations of higher learning.
Already we have achieved so much. Our Cross-Country and 7th grade Volleyball teams have both brought home district championships. Our theater students won first in One-Act Play competition. Our Robotics team, the Circuit Serpents, have left a mark at competition. We are truly setting a tradition of excellence and high performance, raising the standard in all aspects of our students' education.
We invite the community to get involved and be a part as we create a tradition of positive performance and new opportunities.
While elementary students are learning about pitch, tone, scales and recorders, middle and high school students across the district have been competing in UIL music competitions and earning high marks.
The Pieper Ranch Middle School CyberPatriot team will be recognized at the Mayor's Cyber Cup Awards Luncheon & College Fair March 30, after being named the Rookie Team of the year in the San Antonio area.
During the current school year, Comal ISD scheduled 10 early release days. Six of those 10 are set aside specifically for teachers to have the time to collaborate with each other, and the result of this collaboration time is an increase in student performance.
It lasted only 11 days, but its results are impressive. A student-led environmental campaign resulted in 88 boxes, 2,750 pairs or 5,500 shoes. They are now on their way to a non-profit organization which will repurpose and recycle every one.
