V.R. Eaton High School will be the district’s third comprehensive high school. The campus is named in honor of Wise County resident and rancher V.R. Eaton. The campus will open in August 2015 with 9-10th grades only. Current enrollment projections indicate the school will open with approximately 1,000 students in its first year. Another grade level will be added each year until V.R. Eaton has 9-12th grades in the 2017-2018 school year.
