DRIPPING SPRINGS — The Dripping Springs ISD Board of Trustees selected Cypress Springs Elementary as the name for the new school under construction on Darden Hill Road, south of the intersection with Sawyer Ranch Road. The DSISD fifth elementary school will open August 2021.
Cypress Springs are a group of actual natural springs located just outside of district boundaries but in the general proximity of the new campus site. All DSISD schools also are named after local existing springs.
Other recommendations included Darden Hill Elementary and Wildwood Springs Elementary. Cypress and Wildwood represented existing springs, while Darden Hill was a reference to a school that existed in the late 1800s on Darden Hill Road, near FM 150.
