Jr./Sr. High School

This project was fully funded and completed.  Thank you for everyone’s generous donations!

About the Project

In September 2011, the residents of Brandon, Rowley and Independence passed a bond vote with nearly 70% approval to construct a new $27.5 M Jr./Sr. High School Facility. The Mustang Foundation led the capital campaign for the construction of the new Independence Jr./Sr. High School. The structure is finished and is beautiful. We continue to take donation to offset any costs associated with the new facility.
