Lufkin ISD’s proposed $75 million bond package would rebuild Lufkin Middle School, according to Scott Skelton, president of the LISD board of trustees. The core of the existing middle school campus, which was originally built as the high school during the Eisenhower administration in 1955, still stands.

Today the campus houses 1,700 students spread out in 21 separate buildings on 75 acres. There are 100 entrances to the campus that must be secured. The school is so large that neither the cafeteria nor the auditorium can seat the entire student body at one time, according to Skelton.
