Based on demographic projections, Aledo Middle School will exceed maximum student capacity in one year (2020-2021). The Bearcat Growth Committee addressed the enrollment growth and capacity at the middle school level by proposing a bond package to include a new Middle School #2 and a large-scale renovation/expansion of the current Aledo Middle School.
Renovations to Aledo Middle School would include a new library, fine arts wing, gym, field house and new cafeteria space. The bond proposal is based on a new 6th-8th grade configuration at the middle school level. Currently, McAnally Intermediate serves all Aledo ISD 6th grade students.
Aledo Middle School originally opened in 1967 as a high school and middle school. It became AMS after the current high school was built in 2000 and the front wing addition opened in 2002.
