Voters approved a $175 million bond proposition for the Boerne Independent School District Board on May 7, 2016. The measure passed by a margin of 3,485 to 1,262. Funds from the bond were used to build two new elementary campuses and the District's third middle school. In addition, the bond funded a broad range of improvements benefiting all campuses in the district.
Dr. Ferdinand L. Herff Elementary
This new elementary school prototype conforms to a steeply-sloping site. In order to traverse the school, a central rotunda feature incorporates a 170-foot long curved ramp, allowing the youngest students to reach the lower floor without using stairs.

Old Fabra Campus Conversion
Boerne ISD converted an existing 1930’s era elementary school to a combination alternative school and central administration office for the entire district. The newly renovated facility included office spaces, data center, board meeting room, training centers with movable partitions, and a full service kitchen/cafeteria. The existing buildings were demolished down to the structure and rebuilt to transfer the function from teaching spaces to office spaces.

Van Raub Elementary
Van Raub's 800-student, 42-classroom campus opened in 2018. The two-story school is organized around a tiered courtyard that uses the site’s natural topography. “Learning neighborhoods” have an easy flow from interior rooms to collaborative hallway settings to the outdoors. Hallways include spaces with smart boards for active, team-based learning, as well as areas for quiet, reflective study. Outdoor areas with sinks are designed to encourage exploration into science and nature.

The library, which is in a central location adjacent to three classroom wings, offers access to a unique exterior courtyard. The outdoor space features tiered seating and a small platform that can be used as a stage. The 2-story facility was built on a greenfield site in one of the fastest growing communities in the district. It is the district’s third middle school.
