Rick Reedy High School is one of four new campuses that opened today in Frisco. Opening with ninth- and 10th-graders, the school is the eighth high school for the rapidly growing suburb. And it’s the second part of a four-year plan for the district to open four high schools in four years. Under Frisco’s small-school model, it caps high school enrollment at about 2,100 students. Last year, Frisco opened Independence High School. Next year, Lebanon Trail High School is due to be its ninth. Plans are underway for the 10th — Memorial High School — and the district already has land for high schools Nos. 11 and 12. Student enrollment in the district is expected to increase about 6 percent from last year when school begins Monday. As one of the fastest growing school districts in the United States, Frisco adds about 2,500 to 3,500 students each year. It’s made opening schools a science, publishing guidebooks to standardize the process.
